My brother Ben is training to be an outdoor activities instructor and he's a keen kayaker, more specifically, he has really started to get seriously into kayak surfing. I enjoy kayaking too, but up until now, have been more used to the more sedate river running and static wave playboating in a nice steady creek boat. The Mega Neutron was VERY different, but wow, when you get to grips with the instability when you're not moving and catch a wave, you see why the boat was designed like this. The slightest adjustment in weight and your edges did all the work, carving effortlessly through the wave. Ben's now bought the plastic (there's also a posher performance composite version) model and I'm looking forward to pinching it off from time to time...
