Kayaks for White Water Rivers

River running kayaks are designed to offer stability, confidence and agility when paddling white water from garde I - V. River running white water kayaks are designed with volume in the bow to keep the front end of the kayak above rapids and prevent the bow from being held under. Bow rocker profile enables the boat to be naturally directed over rapids, waves and holes allowing you to carry momentum down stream. Hull shapes differ from displacement to planning and edges or rails open up the ability to carve for diffrent styles of paddling and rivers. A half slice kayak is designed with a high volume bow and low volume stern to provide confidence while paddling downstream but the ability through agility and light weight to turn quickly and preform tricks in eddy lines.
