Kayaks with a sense of purpose - RIOT

Point the Thunder upstream with its beveled edges and flat, shallow hull will make any ferry effortless; point it downstream and all that speed makes it punch through everything smoothly. 

Just like a reversible switch, the Thunder will adapt to the current’s energy. 

The Thunder is available in two sizes to fit different sized paddlers:  Thunder 65 & 76. 

The Thunder fits in the category of kayak named “river runners” because their design allows them to quickly navigate high-flow waterways.

As compared to a creek boat or playboat, which might have a more dramatic hull design, a river runner’s shape will generally resemble a recreational kayak the most of any in this group.

This style of boat can vary in length from 7 to 9 feet, using a moderate displacement hull. In longer lengths, these are the ideal boats for big water, sacrificing some of the technical manoeuvrability for running rapids with easy paddling and handling.

Shorter variations of this style allow skilled paddlers to play and perform aerials. The river runner is arguably the most versatile kayak design.
