Fans of Jackson's Rockstar Kayak will love this most recent and even more playful reincarnation of Jackson's iconic play boat. By reducing the length of the boat by one inch, Jackson made this version of the Rockstar ready to slice through the water. The shortened length also reduces drag on either ends when working a pocket or boosting off a wave. Lighter weight riders will also enjoy this improved design, since the reduced drag allows for easier bow and stern initiation. Retaining the same Rocker shape as previous models, this boat is fast and easy to throw and roll. In addition to the shortened length, Jackson raised the sidewalls in the middle section of the boat, making the hull stiffer, stronger, while also increasing the cartwheel performance of the boat. The Rockstar comes with all the comforts of a Jackson Kayak, which means it comes standard with the Happy Feet foot bag and Sweet Cheeks bucket seat. Sweet Cheeks allows you to customize the fit of the seat simply by sitting in the seat and then removing the excess air through the valve, leaving the chair formed to your own figure. Not only does this make the seat more comfortable, but it helps absorb impact when dropping off waterfalls and allows for a more responsive feel. The Happy Feet footbag works by the same principle, but also allows you get a perfect fit with your boat in a matter of minutes just by putting your feet back into the preformed foot bag. All this means more time spent on the water, and less time cramming foam in your boat trying to dial in the perfect fit.
