Creek boat recommendations

Post by Away_from_home » Tue Apr 24, 2018 5:48 am

Hey all

I'm looking into buying a creek boat. I've been out of the loop for a long time. Probably been about 8 years since I was on a river.
I'm 6ft 2, about 15 stone. When I was kayaking, I was about a level 3 and was comfortable on grade 3 rivers but I know that was a long time ago.
I shall be taking it easy now and I'm looking for something forgiving.

Any recommendations or thoughts on what I should be looking at?

Cheers.

I'm about 13 stone and same height. I went with a JK Zen. Super comfortable.

The Karma is a bit bigger and also super comfortable too:
