kayak recommendations for a large beginner

Post by bladerunner » Fri Apr 22, 2016 1:24 am

Im looking for any recommendations for a whitewater/river runner kayak for a bigger beginner. im 6'2" 280lbs with a size 13 foot. I have a few boats that ive looked at but would like to see if anyone has any recommendations or experience they can share. the boats ive looked at so far are the dagger katana 10.4 pyranha burn 3 xl and the fusion. if anyone has any other recommendations I would greatly appreciate it.

I paddle a Katana 10.4. I'm 6'3" and 250lbs. with a size 14 foot. Liquid Logic XP10 would be another one to look at. As already mentioned a Karma L would fit you too or a Dagger Mamba 8.6. Th outfitting in the Daggers is super comfy.

Jackson Super Hero is a good option.

I have a small fleet of Perception Overflow Xs, which were the big boy kayaks of their time. However after trying the Katana, I was impressed with the comfort, maneuverability, and more foot-room for my sized 14 feet also.

Best Regards
Jim
