Jackson Kayak RockStar V SM
Jackson Kayak is proud to continue our legacy of making the best playboats in the world with the Rockstar V! The Rockstar V started with a goal to make the best boat for every wave and hole on the planet. We combined the best qualities of all our older playboats into a sweet, new shape that's a game-changer in this category. The Rockstar V makes it easier to have more fun in all kinds of play environments: waves, holes, flatwater, and downriver are all easier and giggle-inducing. Whether you're just learning to get vertical in the flatwater or hoping the win the next World Championships, this boat will make it easier than ever.
What makes the Rockstar V work so well? The hull takes inspiration from boats like the 2014 Rockstar and the legendary 2010 All Star for a higher-floating, easy to paddle feel. Our new double-railed drop chine system gives us the highest planing performance of any boat yet--on big waves and small, this boat is FAST, LOOSE, and hops effortlessly into the air. The bow is among the sliciest we've ever made for easy control in holes and flatwater. We kept the knees nice and high for lots of leg-room and extra big-air volume. The volume distribution bow to stern is better balanced than all our former playboats.
But you won't need to understand all the details of why it works when you try it. You'll just know that you're having more fun than you've ever had before. You'll be fighting a perma-grin all day. Every wave and hole will feel like they just became better spots. It'll be easier than ever to make the boat do what you want downriver and in the flatwater. Whether you're learning to surf and spin for the first time, or trying the biggest aerial tricks, the Rockstar V is your ticket. You'll love our comfy outfitting package which includes the new Bees Knees thigh hook system, the Sweet Cheeks custom shape-able seat pad, our Sure-Lock Backband kit, and a newly redesigned foam foot block. Don't take our word for it--go try one and find out for yourself!
