Winter Boating with the Jackson Kayak Nirvana

As I spend most of my time in a creak boat these days when Jackson Kayak announced they were making the Nirvana I could not wait to try one out.

So at the start of this winter I finally got my hands on the Jackson Kayak Nirvana and we had rain. Unwrapping it in the car park at Dartmeet I was like a kid at Christmas. All I needed to do was put a few hip pad shims in and it was ready to go.

I went for the Medium size and found it was the right size for me.

That weekend I spent all my time on the water around Dartmoor check out the video of that weekend below:

Next on the cards for the Nirvana was a trip to North Wales in December. This would be a good test for the boat and it did not disappoint. The boat dealt with everything I did really well. It’s fast, manoeuvrable and comfortable.

During our time in North Wales we had all types of conditions, with high and low water levels, even snow! It was a really good trip and I cant wait to head back there!

The next trip this winter was when fellow Squarerock team members Dan and Heidi came down for a week of South West boating. They could not have timed it any better as we just had a load of rain and the rivers were up. We even got a few laps on the East Lynn, one of my favourite rivers down here, and I could not wait to show them the lines.

It’s been a good winter of boating for me and the Nirvana was the icing on the cake. Below are some photos of the boat in Dartmoor.

Catch you on the water
