Team Jackson has been on the Nile for the past 9 days so far. We have been paddling on sweet waves and holes, and some BIG water river running too!
The Rock Star is still blowing my mind. Rockship fast compared to the All-Star, which was the standard in freestyle kayak speed until this boat! Combine that with a looseness that is ridiculous, and ease of getting arial, landing tricks, and carving and I am in kayak heaven!
Super Hole has been incredible and is the closest thing to what we will see for the world championships in Plattling Germany this summer. The Rock Star does HUGE moves there. Dane and Nick are doing lots of filming and we’ll be able to show off the boat that way when we return. You can see the difference just watching. Everyone here who has tried has an immediate smile that they can’t wipe off. It is so much fun!
