Playboats and Freestlye Kayaks

Playboats for white water down river play, hole boating, flat water freestyle and surfing

Playboat kayaks are designed to be agile, snappy and slicey for maximum fun on the water. Their shapes vary depending on their intended use but all follow the familiar short, stubby and slicey design for pulling off impressive tricks which larger volume boats could never do. Hole boats are designed to use a poor over feature and the direction of flowing water to throw tricks such as front loops and cartwheels the high-volume design of playboats around the knees allows for extra pop transitioning to extra height being gained when preforming areal tricks. Planning hull designs allow for speed when catching waves and a loose feel alongside edges allowing you to carve when surfing and snapping turns.
