Take the middle way.
Jackson Kayak's Zen Kayak is the perfect crossover boat, offering a little bit of everything to everyone. Excelling as an all-around river runner and creek slayer, the Zen also holds its own as an entry-level kayak that's user friendly for beginners learning the basics of bracing, rolling, and running rapids top-to-bottom.
The larger-volume dimensions increase overall float, keeping you above the fray in highly aerated water typical of steep creeks and boiling big water runs over 10,000 CFS. Plus, the high, rounded sidewalls increase stability while the revamped, expanded rocker profile maximizes boof-ability over rocks, waves, and holes, allowing you to send drops and nail hits like a boss.
