Dan Piano Reviews The Pyranha Everest Whitewater Kayak

If you like big boofs, sticking your line, making your friends look like rookies, and you and all your gear are weighing in at 165 – 300 pounds, than the Pyranha Everest is the boat for you. Based on the very successful Burn design, the Everest features a softer edge, a more aggressive profile, and more rocker than it’s predecessor. This is an unbelievably stable creeker with two more gallons than the large Burn.
