Just Released: Jackson Kayak Villain Prototype Photos

Thanks to the crew at Jackson Kayak for showing us photos of their brand new river-running creeker, the Villain. Along the same lines as the Pyranha Burn and Dagger Mamba, the Villain will be super beginner-friendly but able to drop big falls in a single bound (when leaving the scene of a villianous incident). The flatish hull should be easy to steer and control, but the rounded, recessed chines should provide good secondary stability. The waist-high side line helps stiffen the walls of the boat, giving you a solid, tough sidewall.

We think it may become easiest roller in our fleet, and it looks like it'll be pretty speedy, but we won't know for sure until we get it on the water. Luckily, we'll be doing just that tomorrow with the JK crew. Expect to see photos from the test run on the Cascades tomorrow both on this blog and on EJ's blog.
