The original Jackson Kayak, the Jackson Fun Series has been one of the most popular all-around boats of all time. Now in its fourth iteration, the new Fun features high, forgiving, parting lines, lots of leg room for comfort and a sleek style reminiscent of the original and 2nd generation Fun. With this version, Jackson has gone back to the Fun being a more well versed river runner, with enough freestyle features to make it an attractive option for beginners wanting a go-everywhere-do-everything type kayak as well as to seasoned experts looking for a versatile and comfortable construction that doesn’t sacrifice downriver performance (think Grand Canyon).
The combination of hull shape for river running and for play makes this boat a great all around option; narrow for speed but flared out sidewalls and increased continuous rocker keeps your edges out of the water. This design allows you to keep more water off the deck, make the most of your boofs, and help you cross holes and eddy lines with authority. The increased side-wall flair allows for added stability on edge, easier rolling, later bracing, and to reduce the effects of boils and cross-currents.
