- skill level
This thing is awesome.
I love the way this thing paddles. I find it to be very stable, predictable, and fast. I think no matter what your skill level is this boat is good to go. I've been paddling the medium Nirvana for a year now and I'm very satisfied. My favorite thing about this kayak is how it skims over nasty holes. It gives me confidence to stick lines that scared me before. This boat has a low center of gravity. Most other kayaks have you sitting up slightly higher which can make it easier to flip. I find with the Nirvana if you get into a low brace you can ride out just about anything. One of the last brands manufactured here in the USA . When it comes to warranty and customer service Jackson stands behind their product as well. This company is good people that give back to the Whitewater Community more than any other brand as well. I just think from a bottom-line perspective this boat is it a good purchase for many reasons.
The Nirvana was responsive and stayed on top of features with ease. I found it easy to get where I needed to go as the boat carried speed nicely
