Fans of Jackson Kayak's Fun Series may think it's impossible to improve on perfection, but the 2015 reincarnation of the iconic Fun Kayak may have done just that. The 2015 model now totes an even more user friendly design that will inspire confidence in newcomers to the sport and impress seasoned vets looking for a river running boat that will still spin, squirt, and cartwheel. By lengthening the boat by about an inch and increasing the width of the stern, this boat instinctively stays on top of the water, making it ideal for running big rivers. Jackson Kayak also fitted the boat with its new and improved hull design, which not only makes the boat faster, but also allows for an easy to spin, smooth feel that beginners will appreciate as they start to learn how to spin and surf. The 2015 Fun sports a raised and swooped parting line, making the kayak more forgiving in eddy lines and easier for perfecting rolling technique. The inside of the boat is fitted with a standard foam seat, which can be replaced with the Sweet Cheeks chair (sold separately). The hook and loop hip pads allow you get the perfect fit with your legs, and the foot area easily accommodates the Happy Feet system (sold separately). A newly redesigned fiberglass reinforced hull track makes for a stiffer boat and eliminates weak weld points through a special adhesive making this boat stiffer and stronger than previous models in the Fun Series.
