Zen Series

Zen Series The 2015 Zen bridges the gap between river runner and creek boat and offers a new tier in speed and performance. The sidewalls are higher than the previous model giving it much improved stability. The added volume and bow rocker keep you higher on the surface. The Zen has held onto its fast, light maneuverability but now allows you to fly up and over rocks, holes and waves better than ever. Whether you are looking for a forgiving, easy to roll all around kayak while just getting started or wanting a sporty river runner that surfs as well as it creeks, the 2015 Zen is for you. This new 2015 hull design will make the Zen a forgiving kayak for those rolling, bracing and running whitewater for the first time. Making it not only an awesome instructional kayak but a top creek racer as well. The end result will be a Zen that is fast, stable and more versatile than ever on rivers and creeks. Available in three sizes, the Zen S, M, L.

    Just got my new lg zen and love it. But my question is why is it so much harder to roll than my hero? A little about me I am 5″11 185/190lbs 34 waist with 19.5 shoe. I know it’s a bigger boat but I thought it would be easier.

    can you surf in this kayak? and how much room do you have in here with a person? as in would you be able to pack for a long overnight trip or is there no room? also will a big kid that weights about 140lbs fir in this?

    I am a bigger waisted guy that wants to get into kayaking white water, I’m looking at the zen large but I’m unsure if the cockpit size will be adequate?
