Jackson Kayak is kicking off the New Year by turning up the volume and amplifying what the world expects from a freestyle kayak to bring you the Rock Stars. Jackson Kayak’s iconic Star series is will continue to play the game as the new Rock Star line takes to the spotlight on the world stage in small, medium and large sizes in both rotomolded and carbon/Kevlar models.
Jackson Kayak founder and president Eric “EJ” Jackson and his longtime design partner David Knight promise the new Rock Star will do everything easier, bigger and snappier and boost freestyle scores to unprecedented levels.
“Our team riders asked for it, so we’re delivering the boat they need to continue to take freestyle to new heights,” explained Jackson, a four-time world freestyle kayak champ. “The plastic Rock Star series will be the Porsche of its class; carbon/Kevlar takes it to Formula 1 performance levels.”
“I love how much better balanced it is,” said JK Factory Team and veteran US National Team member Clay Wright. In Wright’s opinion, the Rock Star is faster, looser, carves more aggressively while being a bit more forgiving in the bow and stern when surfing and is “very entertaining” on the waves.
