Why We Like The Jackson Kayak Gnarvana Kayak

The Jackson Kayak Gnarvana Kayak is a quiver of one when it comes to getting rowdy on a lively river or exploring the flat waters of a lake. Its high-rockered profile makes maneuvering this bullet easy, while the carrying straps disperse the load during transportation.


  • Versatile kayak for beginners and weathered paddlers alike
  • High rockered profile makes this kayak easy to maneuver
  • Uni-Shock Bulkhead System offers shock absorption
  • Carry straps make toting to and from the water easy

Confidence Inspiring!

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 5.5"

I bought the Jackson Antix 2.0 (I'll get to the Gnarvana shortly) when if first came out in 2021 because I wanted a fun river runner instead of running everything in my playboat. I found the Antix 2.0 to not be very confidence inspiring because of its squashed tail, I'd end up endo'ing backwards pretty much every time in big waves. I decided to try the Gnarvana this year and have absolutely loved it! It's easy to roll, more stable, I haven't endo'd backwards yet, and it's more comfortable to sit in than the Antix 2.0. I'm very glad I bought it! I just wish they would have made it in a Lime color. The only issue I have with the Gnarvana is the type of rope they use to tighten up the back rest. The rope itself is fine, but the reflective strips that're woven into the rope are stiff and uncomfortable to grab. It's softening up slowly over time, but I wish Jackson would've used the same rope as the Antix 2.0. I plan to keep this boat for a long time! Unless they come out with a Lime color option in the future. Then I'll sell my Northern Lights boat and get the Lime.
