If you want to river run easily, surf waves and holes in control, but want more speed, room, and ease of staying upright than other river running playboats, this is for you. A big step towards river running from the Fun, but still keeping the great surfing characteristics of the JK playboats, the Fun Runner is just that- A really Fun river Runner. If you want to river run easily, surf waves and holes in control, but want more speed, room, and ease of staying upright than other river running playboats, this is for you. A big step towards river running from the Fun, but still keeping the great surfing characteristics of the JK playboats, the Fun Runner is just that- A really Fun river Runner. Since it is nearly a foot longer than a fun, and nearly a foot shorter than most creekers it is positioned right in the middle for length, speed, and maneuverability. This boat is instruction and learning friendly, while it also performs beautifully for the most advanced paddlers. The Fun Runner is built from scratch from the ground up with a friendly planing hull and effective chines/edges, as well as a roomy foot area as part of a sleek low profile deck for surfing and keeping the boats weight to a minimum. The Fun Runner helps complete the river running category for Jackson Kayak in good form.

About Me
boating 20 plus years, run 3- 4 plus usually.
Pros / The Good
great river runner, surf boat and high volume grade 3 4 runs.Fast boat, stops on anything, excels on any fast moving longer waves/holes.
Very comfy (a plus for us old guys), did I metion it was fast? Spins fast for its lenght and will give you amazing eddy turns.
Cons / The Bad
Abit long for those steep trashy holes but just gotta keep it moving in these, gets knocked around in big pushy water but not enough to hinder you.Why didnt they come out with a few years ago as would of saved me some money buying other boats then selling them.
