Jackson Kayak Fun 2017 - WhitewaterJackson Kayak
- Current Stock:
The FUN was Jackson Kayak’s first ever whitewater kayak! In 2015 the return to the core of what has made this kayak the best selling Jackson Kayak of all time: FUN! The entirely new hull design returns the paddler to the roots of what fun on whitewater is: river running, surfing, squirting, cartwheeling and more. The NEW hull will have high, forgiving, parting lines, lots of leg room for comfort and a sleek style reminiscent of the Fun we’re used to paddling. The bow rocker is nice and high to keep your bow on the surface, while the stern rocker is smooth and subtle giving you better tracking, surfing and maneuverability. The combination of hull shape for river running and for play makes this boat a great transitional kayak for those wanting to spend more time playing than before. Want to learn to surf but find yourself flushing straight through, the hull speed of this kayak will make catching waves a breeze.The fun is capable of easing beginners into freestyle and is also a great skills developing kayak for intermediates and experts. The Jackson Kayak Fun Series is available in 3 new sizes, the 2 Fun, Fun, and 4 Fun.
At Zoar Outdoor we love the Jackson Kayak Fun Series for their ability to make surfing and turning easier. The edges carve great and for those that want to learn how to stern squirt or initiate the bow it can do that too.
