The Paddler’s Advantage: If you want a feel for how the boat will paddle…. Think sporty- the Hero is short and stable, yet super fast for the length. This will become a staple for anyone wanting to teach or learn the roll as well.
For beginners look for easier to roll, easier to steer and stay on line, and much easier to keep on the surface going through waves or holes.
For intermediate paddlers, you’ll get the same, plus the best boofing you can imagine, and stability in harder rapids, and a much more friendly/fun surfing machine.
For Expert boaters, the creeking and big water capibilities is greatly improved, along with the simple stability which keeps you right side up in harder stuff.
