Explosive downriver freeride energy that everyone can enjoy! #setifoff

Introducing the Pyranha Firecracker! Filling the gap between the beloved Pyranha Ripper 2 and Pyranha Ozone, this #HalfSizeHalfSilce will whip into every micro-eddy, snap onto every wave, and get recklessly vertical just about anywhere. No matter who you are, you'll be able to throw this boat around, sky-gaze, and have the comfort and confidence to nail all the steezy downriver moves!

"More bow than the Ozone, more playable than the Ripper. Splat everything with the Firecracker!" - Wade Harrison

  • Don't just unlock the river, blow the doors off!
