Im going to be in Park City the first two weeks of July and want to get in some paddling. I am from the southeast but have a lot of big water experience
. paddle mostly class IV stuff back home and have done the Grand Canyon before. Not looking for anything too big just a nice day on the water,.It may be that i have to do a raft trip with some family members as well...
I can hpld my own in a raft as well for a trip with them...maybe a self guided raft rental trip with them.
Any Advice or tips....

So, with that said i have been using an NRS Ninja and it is nowhere near as comfortable! this thing is like wearing a strange float bag on my chest. It is very stiff and feels very bulky. I know that it needs to be that way in a sense to do its job but this is nuts.
What's a good alternative to the Lotus Lowrider in the current offerings from all the PFD manufacturers? such a shame Lotus is no longer are made.

good info thank you...

Just thinking that mot of the reviews were good, wonder if the negative was because the people paddling the boat were not the bigger guys the boat was made for. i only think that because alot people tend to love the 230/240's
t
just thinking out loud, again thanks for the info

BoaterTalk Same Boat
Interested in the feedback you get with this thread, I am in the same boat except I have a ten year old I am in the process of teaching. He is having fun learning but I want to make sure that the fin factor stays high. We started on flat water then moved on to moving water and then progressed to easy class II stuff like the Cartecay and upper Chattahoochee. We are about a month into it and he took his first swim in a rapid at third ledge on the upper Chattahoochee. Came up smiling so I'm glad he was still having tun and not terrified. I have him going to the NOC kayaking camp for a week in April and hes very excited about it. Really hope he sticks with it as it's so much fun to paddle with him! I know there's a huge difference between 6 and 10 but I would imagine the concepts are the same in regards to teaching. Again looking forward to what the community as a whole has in regards to advice on teaching kids a sport we all have an addiction to....

Been out of the paddling game for a while and am just back in, this may have been asked and answered already but I was wondering if anyone knew why they really pulled out of the US market? Always liked their boats
