Per Jackson's history: Jackson Kayak’s legacy starts with Freestyle Kayaking. Since 2004, the Star Series has been at the forefront of the freestyle scene and each generation of All Star and Rockstar answers to the always evolving demands of the playboater. At Jackson we pride ourselves in building our Rockstars to the call of our fans and enthusiasts. Our legacy exists because of our natural connection to the whitewater community through our incredible team; we are always paddling and always listening. When you asked for faster boats with better take-offs - we delivered. When you asked for slicier ends for more dynamic hole moves, we provided. When you asked for bigger loops, we listened.

Today is no different and, for the last four years, we have heard the playboater’s demands for a boat to do it all. With our history and experience building to those needs, we can and will deliver your requests. The Legacy continues with the Rockstar V - the 5th Generation of the Rockstar line. A legacy product, YOUR legacy product, that spans decades of freestyle design and decades of paddling with and being inspired by you, our core users.

The Rockstar V also includes the Bees Knees thigh hook system, which is new for 2022. These simple, effective, lightweight thigh hooks will give you a more secure fit for maximum edge control. They are easily adjustable, require no tools or hardware, and will help you take your kayaking to the next level.
