How to Pick a Kayak - Whitewater Vs. Crossover

Whitewater kayaks are typically shorter with aggressive rocker and can seem a little more "tippy" to those brand new to paddling. They're the go-to for those wanting to paddle water of class II and up.

Crossover kayaks, on the other hand, are longer with moderate rocker, and a hull with a sweet balance between stability and maneuverability. Perfect for lazy rivers, flatwater, or even some mild whitewater.

Whitewater boats are the perfect companion for some class II-V action, but if you're all about adaptability, our crossovers might be a better fit. Check out the full video for the lowdown!
