Leaking Kayak?

Leaking Kayak?
Leaking Kayak?

A common problem faced by paddlers each time they buy a new boat. Reasons for such problems can be placed in to one of two categories;

* The paddlers kit is letting the water in.
* The boat is really leaking.

If your paddling kit doesn’t fit correctly it will leak and yes the boat will fill with water. If it’s a simple case of ill fitting dry top or deck then the solution may be easy but expensive – get some kit that fits. On the other hand your kit may need a little TLC – check seals/seams and repair or replace as necessary.

The Booster Is Back

Corran Addison is bringing the Booster back to the water. Updated for 2022.

The Booster Is Back
The Booster Is Back

A little more than a decade ago, an entire class of boat simply disappeared: the playful river runner. These were truly great boats because they bridged that gap between a hard core creek boat, and a play boat. They could run fairly hard rapids, while remaining entertaining and easy to paddle, and muck about in.

The Booster changed how a playful river runner was supposed to handle. With a planing hull, playful handling, but in a format that could run rivers well, the Booster was the choice of instructional centres, beginners padlers, and even advanced and expert paddlers looking to mix it up. Everyone loved the Booster.

A lot has changed since the original Booster was released. Hulls are faster, looser and more forgiving. Rocker profiles make them more predictable, with a dryer ride, and overall ergonomics leave those sitting in old boats feeling cramped. The new Booster takes the performance of the original, and puts it squarely on a platform that is comfortable, forgiving, fast and loose, boofs like a charm, is super forgiving in even the most unpredictable waters, without paddling with the comparative sluggishness of creek boats.

Whether you’re a beginner, looking for something easy and exciting to get into and grow with, or an accomplished paddler that wants something more interesting than a full creek boat without going to a half slice, the Booster has you covered.
