Reconnaissance is the military term for exploring beyond the area occupied by friendly forces. While the creeks may call out to us, the forces of the river don’t always welcome our exploration. Performing at the highest levels of creeking and class IV-V+ boating, the Recon handles creeks and rivers efficiently, confidently and safely, with boofability worthy of a new term. Helping boaters make limit pushing a way of life – the Recon Series.
The Recon will get paddlers down river safely while performing at the highest levels of creeking and class IV-V+ boating, enhancing a paddler’s confidence and skill sets in the process to make boundary pushing safer than ever before.
The continuous rocker profile combined with the unique distribution of volume makes this design very fast and easy to boof. The unique volume in the bow and its pronounced, upswept shape make the Recon resurface and unload water quickly when blasting through holes, while the domed stern deck minimises back-ending in holes and drops. The location of the full stern chine combined with the generous side wall flare provides superb secondary stability and substantial control when carving, ferrying, or tracking. The Recon is also equipped with seven points of rescue and strategically placed soft grip handles for greater accessibility. The Recon was designed for intermediate and advanced paddlers who want best-in-class performance and maximum safety features while enjoying both multi-day river trips and tackling class IV & V+ rapids.
