Jackson Kayak’s Fourth Generation Creek Boat over the past 9 years takes leaps and bounds forward.   The Karma takes a hard turn towards stability, carving ability and  it’s sister: The Zen’s, speed. This boat is fast, stable, and forgiving, with predictable turning, boofing, and a bow that rises over anything in its way.

The Karma starts with a Hull that is flat and stable, providing a low draft to get over rocks easily, and be stable when on them, or on the water.   The rocker profile on the Karma offers easy downstream paddling over waves and holes with little water on the deck, plus it ads speed into and out of drops to carry you past the holes, and over the rocks with ease.    The sidewalls of the Karma are massive and provide huge secondary stability, plus keep water off the deck making it less edgy.   The parting line is as high as we could make it, also giving a very forgiving shape for side currents and holes.    The deck is shedding and stable for resurfacing, while the bow lifting shape keeps it rising up downstream.    Perhaps one of the biggest features that are built into this boat is the downstream speed.   This boat will make the ultimate extreme racing creekboat due to the idealized shape of the rocker, hull, and dry bow.   The boat will be outfitted with the Uni-Shock Bulkhead, sure lock backband and our new Thermo Formed U-channel, and complete Boat Armor package for hull support/seat and deck support.

  • Uni-Shock Bulkhead
