If you want to river run easily, surf waves and holes in control, but want more speed, room, and ease of staying upright than other river running playboats, this is for you. A big step towards river running from the Fun, but still keeping the great surfing characteristics of the JK playboats, the Fun Runner is just that- A really Fun river Runner. Since it is nearly a foot longer than a fun, and nearly a foot shorter than most creekers it is positioned right in the middle for length, speed, and maneuverability. This boat is instruction and learning friendly, while it also performs beautifully for the most advanced paddlers. The Fun Runner is built from scratch from the ground up with a friendly planing hull and effective chines/edges, as well as a roomy foot area as part of a sleek low profile deck for surfing and keeping the boats weight to a minimum. The Fun Runner helps complete the river running category for Jackson Kayak in good form.
