Jackson Kayak – Outfitting

Jackson Kayak Europe have been working on some new outfitting over the last few months to make boats that are lighter and stiffer.

The first shot shows a prototype seat sitting on a hull stiffening plate. This was then developed and refined until the final carbon version was created.

Raven Fork

Raven Fork

The Raven Fork was one of the first bigger creeks I did in NC. It’s just such a gem of a run. The rocks are so smooth and the style feels a little different than most runs out here. With a few of the most classic rapids in the southeast, plus plenty of other memorable ones. It’s just a run that whether low or high, you’re gonna have a great day.

Made It Back – Great Falls

Made It Back

Great Falls has some of my earliest kayaking memories, but it had been WAY too long since I made it back. I decided to make the long rally up for the race, but also because levels were looking good and the joy kayaking was gonna be great. The levels worked out where I was able to get all the lines I hadn’t done in so many years, and then some more. It was actually an epic day, and I’m so stoked I made the rally.

So Many Moves To Hit

So Many Moves To Hit

Ever since I got the production Antix the one place I couldn’t wait to get it on was the Green. Normally when I am at the Green it is just for the race and I am doing long boat laps and training. Getting the chance to do a summer lap, in the half slice was something else. There were so many sick moves and seams to hit. It was such an epic day, and I definitely plan on getting more laps like this, cause it was just too good.

Antix 2.0 Walkthrough

Antix 2.0 Walkthrough
Antix 2.0 Walkthrough

The original Antix was already my favorite boat of all time, but this boat blows it out of the water. It’s the perfect combo of all the playfulness I could ask for, but still gives me confidence that I am going to be able to run some much harder whitewater with this thing. More rocker, planing hull, faster, easier to paddle, this thing is insane. I am so fired up on how it turned out, and can’t wait to get it on all of my favorite sections!

Return To Dreamwave

Scoping through the old drives I came across this short GoPro edit I made from our 2017 return to Dream Wave in Manitoba. Loaded jetskis, camping out beside the best wave in the world, it doesn’t get better.

EJ and The Zen 3.0 Hit The Russell Fork River

EJ and The Zen 3.0 Hit The Russell Fork River
EJ and The Zen 3.0 Hit The Russell Fork River

Used around the world by leading whitewater schools as an amazing teaching tool, the Zen 3.0 takes the attributes that made prior generations of the Zen a top pick and improved on them. The Zen 3.0 stays on top of the water and the bow lifts over and clears things better than any previous design. It is a dry, confidence-inspiring ride, especially when the river gets steep and keeping your bow up is important. The hull combines an amazingly fun Zen feel, with carving, gliding, and surfing, while adding a new level of stability to the platform. The ease of staying right side up is incredible, while the confidence it provides is welcome on any river. It boofs, surfs, and plugs…. versatility doesn’t mean compromise! Your new favorite river runner will also be your new favorite creek boat. The high volume design doesn’t get grabbed in squirrelly situations, and it wants to stay horizontal. This is an amazing platform for teaching beginners, while the biggest whitewater begs for this type of forgiveness. Measurements are for Zen Medium. Coming November 2019.
