gack Sorry to offend y'all, I just want to Make Kayaking Great Again
Modern creek boats have eliminated the need for skill. It has created a whole generation of beaters. Don't believe me? Do a youtube search for "first time green narrows" and try not to shit your pants in fear. I will hold tight to the belief that if you need a creek boat to get down the Ocoee, you don't have the skills to be there safely. I say this as someone who started running the Ocoee in a Jefe without a roll, which in hindsight was just straight foolish. Creek boats are far from the most versatile craft, and I think kayaking could be great again if more people understood that volume is a crutch.
