Jackson Kayak is proud to continue our legacy of creating the best play boats in the world with the Rockstar V! The Rockstar V began with the goal of making the best boat for every wave and hole on the planet. We have combined the best qualities of all our old playboats into a sweet new shape that is a game changer in this category. The Rockstar V makes it easier to have more fun in all kinds of play environments: waves, potholes, flat water and downstream rivers are all easier and cause laughs. Whether you're just learning to ride upright in flat water or hoping to win the next World Championships, this boat will make it easier than ever.
What Makes the Rockstar V Work So Well The hull is inspired by boats like the 2014 Rockstar and the legendary 2010 All Star for a higher floating, easier to paddle feel. Our new double rail chine system gives us the highest planing performance of any anchor boat: in big and small waves, this boat is FAST, SLOW and effortlessly jumps into the air. The bow is among the thinnest we've ever made for easy control in potholes and flat water. We kept the knees nice and high for plenty of legroom and extra air volume. The fore-to-aft volume distribution is better balanced than any of our ex-play boats.
But you won't need to understand all the details of why it works when you try it. You will just know that you are having more fun than you ever have before. You'll be fighting a perma-smile all day. Every wave and hole will feel like it just became a better spot. It will be easier than ever to get the boat to do what you want downstream and in flat water. Whether you're learning to surf and spin for the first time, or trying the greatest aerial tricks, the Rockstar V is your ticket. You'll love our comfortable equipment package that includes the new Bees Knees thigh brace system, Sweet Cheeks custom moldable seat pad, our Sure-Lock Backband Kit, and a newly redesigned foam foot block. Don't take our word for it - try one and find out for yourself!
