    I’am 6 foot 230-240lbs size 12 feet would the antix large be a good fit thanks for any advice!

    1. July 22, 2018 at 4:39 pm

      Hey Jacob! Antix L will be sporty at 230 .. less a creeker and more like a playful, surfy boat. The benefit will be easier to get vertical in more places. You will fit no problem and it will float fine, just know the drawback of being on the higher end of the weight range is that it’s not as fast and a bit edgier than for those in the middle.

      I’m 175 lbs and paddle the Small Antix for play a lot despite being way over the suggested weight range. It’s not fast on the flats but surfs great and plays the Ocoee beautifully. Hope this helps! Clay

    My wife and I both love our antix’s these boats are fantastic for beginners and up. A great boat to learn and grow in.

    Is there a good video or instructions on how to really get the outfitting setup best?

    I haveve been paddle the L Antix since last summer. This boat is Awesome, Everytime I’m out in it the river is a playground. Before the Antix I just primarily paddled my creeker in everything. The Antix has put a while new perspective to me being on the river. Great job .

    Should I get floats for my Antix? Have been told I should. Why put in front wouldn’t the stern be better if needed at all.

    1. July 22, 2018 at 3:42 pm

      Hey Elizabeth – floats are a great way to protect your investment while you are progressing and swimming occasionally or when you are pushing hard.. and swimming that way. A boat with no bags is likely to fold / pin / piton much worse because of the extra water weight inside once the deck is off. Wine bags work great in the bow – and might stay in the stern if it’s a Small. Fun Floats are also a nice, smaller product fit for these smaller boats. The more air in it, the safer your boat when it heads downstream on it’s own. Clay

    I weigh about 185lb and can’t decide between the medium or large antic, I am not able to try or even see one to help me decide. I will spend spend about 70% of the time paddling in the surf and 30% in river, which size would be better in the surf for my weight? Thanks Mike.

    1. July 22, 2018 at 3:33 pm

      Hey Mike! At 185 lbs, the Medium will be narrow and sporty in the surf or on the river. The Lg will feel wider and faster but a bit harder to keep the stern under the foam. I guess it depends on the waves… if they are steeper the medium will be best and if they are flatter perhaps the Large will stay on better . I weight 175 and paddle all 3 depending on the conditions… Small for just play boating (it’s slow but FUN) Medium for most things and Lg for creeking or big water boating. Hope this helps! Clay

    hey do you guys offer any customisable colours eg blue and red in the same boat ?

    1. September 25, 2018 at 10:26 am

      Of course! Custom colors are available on all our kayaks for $200 plus some extra weeks to get it molded (depends on when we are molding that model). Contact your dealer for more info or info@jacksonkayak.com and ask on lead times and costs to your dealer. Good Luck! Clay

    Trying to figure out what kind a skirt I need for a antix M. Any recommendations?

    1. August 24, 2018 at 8:29 am

      The skirt sizes vary per brand, so check the brand of skirt you are looking for for the right size. In general, Antix M is about the same as Rockstar M .. maybe a bit smaller than Nirvana M but very close.

      I use the Seals 1.4 on mine and it’s great. On the Lg Antix I use the Seals 1.7. Hope this helps! Clay

    my Big Easy is still a great boat but after 14 years it’s old, (parked for 6 yrs, broken pelvis got in the way) i’m guessing the med. Antix would the best choice? as i am looking to get new b4 Costa Rica this fall

    thanks goji

    1. September 24, 2018 at 11:07 am

      Hey Stewart! Antix Medium is a GREAT boat for some play but mostly river running, especially if you’ve paddled playboats in the past. I weight 175 and it’s perfect for most any river I paddle. I paddle the LG on big / steep / harder water like N Fork or Suck Creek but the Medium is a treat on North Chick, Gauley, Caney Fork, Watauga, Numbers etc. The Team in the 160 range run it on everything, and I often paddle the Small just for big water / play days – it’s slow since I’m over the range for it but big fun! Antix series is amazing – get the right size for your use and you’ll never look back. What’s your weight and height? Clay

    I am wondering if I will fit in the small. I am 6 foot, 130 lbs, and fit well in a medium 2017 rockstar. I have quite long legs so I am not sure. Thanks.

    1. September 19, 2018 at 8:11 am

      Hey Charlie – you should easily fit an Antix S, the limiting factor will be the bulkhead.

      If you don’t fit just by cutting down the outside of the foam block, you can try 2 other strategies:

      1. Cut the foam block in half – from 3” thick to 1.5” thick and enjoy that extra room.

      2. If the plastic plate is the sticking point, it pops off and you can trim that down a bit too and get more travel. Remember to smooth off the edges – don’t leave any corners that could pop through the hull of the boat on impact. Then add your foam and you’re good!

      Hope this sets you up right! Hit me back if you have any other issues or if this needs better explanation. Good Luck! Clay

    I weigh 5’8, and weigh 185 on good days, lol, considering switching from an axiom 9.0 which is way to big for me, and considering an antix, not sure on the size though, my preference is the medium, what would your guidance be?

    1. October 15, 2018 at 9:23 pm

      Hey Sean! at 185 the Medium will be sporty and squirt and still run rivers while the Lg will be a river runner you can squirt. I’m 175 and paddle both a lot – but also the Small some! For pure play, I go small and squirt a lot but lose much speed in rapids and I lose stability in swirly currents. The Medium is my best fit – I can squirt well and run most rivers up to class 4 or some class 5 I know well. I don’t run creeks in it -or hard stuff – for that I go Large – its faster and floatier and less likely to squirt when I don’t want to. I’m 5;9” and 175 lbs. This will be a foot shorter, just under an inch narrower and a few gal lower than your Antix. For general purpose squirt and surfy river running I would go Medium to get the most play or Lg for a sportier ride than the Axiom but with at least as much river running potential – maybe more since it’s shorter for its volume. IF still undecided, shoot me home river, fav rivers, and other boats you paddle and like. My first name @ Jackson kayak dot com. Clay
