Hero

The Paddler’s Advantage: If you want a feel for how the boat will paddle….   Think sporty- the Hero is short and stable, yet super fast for the length.    This will become a staple for anyone wanting to teach or learn the roll as well.

  • For beginners look for easier to roll, easier to steer and stay on line, and much easier to keep on the surface going through waves or holes.
  • For intermediate paddlers, you’ll get the same, plus the best boofing you can imagine, and stability in harder rapids, and a much more friendly/fun surfing machine.
  • For Expert boaters, the creeking and big water capibilities is greatly improved, along with the simple stability which keeps you right side up in harder stuff.

Vers. 2011: Specific improvements over the last version are:

  • Faster, better boofing,
  • easier to control,
  • better surfing,
  • greatly improved creeking ability,
  • lighter weight
  • Narrower knee profile for more comfortable ergonomics
