There was a time when running rivers was about the groove – the soul. Whether it was class 2 or class 5, it was about jamming like a soulful jazz musician, bee bopping your way down the river. Boof that drop, splat that rock, pivot turn that eddy line… spin off a rock, and carve up a wave. Somehow this has gotten lost with the arrival of high end freestyle, and off-the-charts class 5 river running. The theory goes that if its not a Kodak moment, then its not important. Perhaps if you’re some pro athlete, but for the rest of us – we just want to have a good time.

While this revisits the ideas of old, do not be mislead into thinking the design is old. If anything it’s cutting edge. The Ultra modern rocker lines and surfing hull make this boat slice and dice it’s way down rapids and across the fastest wave faces. Ample bow volume means it’ll skip over the water, resurfacing effortlessly below drops and through wave trains, while the slicy slalomesque tail allows you to pivot turn effortlessly – whether for pure fun or advanced boat handling mid rapid.

Time to break out those Jazz Hands!

Soul Waterman pays shipping up to $200 cost, which covers most of the United States and Canada. However, some areas, if located off the beaten path, can cost more. In this case you have two options, with an occasional third one: 1) you can pay the difference over and above the $200 we cover, or 2) ship to a business address which invariably will drop that cost below $200. 3) Combine your shipment with someone else to an acceptable driving distance for everyone involved (should there be another kayak going relatively close to yours).
Should the shipping quote exceed $200 to your address, we will let you know to discuss the options with you.
