Slalom paddler looking to buy an easy to roll river runner

Delete this post Submitted by David Malakoff <> on 28/Jan/2018


Hi all,

I've paddled just two whitewater kayaks in the 3+ years I've been paddling: a Delsyk plastic slalom boat, and a carbon kevlar Galasport race boat. Love the speed and ability to carve.

Now I'd like to buy a river runner that can handle attaining, quick Little Falls runs, but also rivers like the Cheat. And I'd like a boat with a forgiving roll.

Would prefer to find something used, but could go new... What would you suggest?
