Playboat of Choice: Large Rockstar, I love cross training in a playboat and turning rivers into a playground.  The rockstar is fun in the flats, rips in the holes and carves waves up.

Creeker of Choice: The large Zen has got your back, predictable, stable but still super fast allows me to catch the most air off boofs I eve have, catch eddies i would have missed and carries speed through everything!
