Standout features of the design are generous bow rocker for a dry ride, a highly surfable, supremely manoeuvrable planing hull, maximum waterline for exceptional downriver speed and easy attainments, plus the security of a full plate footrest and a complete array of security points and handles. With enough volume to take on all your favorite runs, in the Ripper you'll be stern squirting out of eddies, dip turning around rocks, and soul surfing every wave... after all, kayaking is meant to be fun!
Low volume stern: Low profile for unhindered back deck rolls and kickflips, and carefully tailored for downriver vertical moves.
Full volume bow: Punches through larger features, whilst also offering ample foot room and plenty of volume for huge pop outs.
Planing hull: With Maximum Waterline Fast, manoeuvrable, and perfectly suited to surfing.
Bow control edges: For carving performance on waves and downriver manoeuvrability, softening towards the stern for forgiveness and to keep the hull loose for flat spins.
Security handles and points: Another essential for running rivers above grade 3, offering unrestricted rescue and boat handling versatility, both on and off the water.
