i just bought my whiplash used not to long ago, its faily easy to roll and really stable in rapids. its just a bit to big to do any major tricks but none the less it is still a good boat

At 6'2" tall & 16 stone, I am not the smallest paddler in the world.The Whiplash is a fantastic surf and river running boat which offers surprising comfort for someone of my size frame.Although it can be a bit of a squeeze, the fun factor soon does away with any real problems. This boat will be an absolute scream for someone slightley smaller.

The whiplash is a great boat if you fit in it. I'm a 6'1" 200 guy with size 11 feet and it's a squeeze especially with any type of footwear on. The boat surf's, run's big water and creeks there's just no damn room. I'm giving mine to my girlfriend.

The whiplash was the first kayak I ever owned. I quickly learned three different types of rolls, how to surf, and squirt in this boat within no time at all. It is a great boat to get anyone started and is versatile towards running the river and being able to play in the sweet spots. Stern squirts take a bit of practice in this boat but it will get your technique perfect.
