Hero 2011 Elite Kayak (no-sku-product)
Product Number: 12901
The Jackson Hero 2010 Elite Kayak was created to make river running and creeking easier and more fun than ever before. Paddlers looking for a uber stable, sporty, quick, easy to control, roll, and boof kayak should be seriously looking at this latest design by EJ/Knight. A very short package that is surprisingly fast, nimble, and just plain easy to paddle is the result of a very well thought out hull package for starters. It is as wide and flat as possible, while still allowing the paddler full edge control both on the water and on rocks. 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.

Shopping for a canoe or kayak? Watch Rock/Creek paddling expert Sara Horne’s boating intro!
"Getting into paddling can be pretty confusing. There are a zillion different boat options, and it can be pretty tough to decide what kind of canoe or kayak is best for what you’d like to do. Do you need a sea kayak, a recreational kayak or a touring kayak? Do you want to run creeks with multiple whitewater rapids, or load up your boat with a weekend’s camping gear and paddle from island to island?"
