The One and Only, Pyranha Shiva

Back in the summer of 2015 I got my first creek boat and it was a Pyranha Shiva Small. My first run in it was on the Upper Nantahala, after that I used it on the Upper Gauley, Tellico, and the South Sauty. The boat was perfect, every boof I hit, the boat just flew …

2015, An Extraordinary Year

This year was amazing, I paddled in 3 countries and 6 states. That might not be a lot, but it is a lot for me. I started off in January with paddling in Alabama, then was off the water for a while because of knee surgery. Then for my first run after surgery, I was …

9R – She Be Lovin’ It!

The 9R is without a doubt the most fun and dynamic kayak I’ve ever paddled. I am not great at looking at a kayak’s design and immediately understanding how it will behave in whitewater, so after seeing footage and hearing that the 9R was designed to be a fast boat, I assumed speed would come with a …

Burn III S Review by 10 Year Old Ripper, Matteo Williams

This summer I got a Small  Generation 3 Burn, it’s a great boat I love it, it is so easy to manoeuvre and catch eddies! My statistics: I am 10 years old, I weigh 94 pounds and I am 59 inches tall. The reason it is so great:  The Burn is super easy to boof. …

9R L Review

This new white water kayak from Pyranha has just dominated the un-official Whitewater World Championships, Sickline! It truly is fast, it plains well but tracks like a dream, holding its line when driven. The 9R L carves across laterals like they’re not there. Turning whilst paddling, it also performs when cranked right over. The 9R …

The 9R: So much more than a race boat.

When the 9R was released this spring, extreme racers flocked to the design to go big, go fast, and win races. The second I saw it, I knew I needed it, and when I sat in my friend’s, I immediately felt at home in the boat. I borrowed it for a run down my local …

Pyranha Burn III L vs XL

Over the past few months, I have put a lot of seat time in the Burn III. I have paddled both the Large and the XL on a number of runs, from Class III to V. I have run rivers, creeked, surfed, and played in both sizes, and I have to say, they are two …

Ok, so Team Pyranha love the 9R, but what about everyone else?

We recently received this review from a local SE boater, so happy to hear everyone is as stoked on this boat as we are! Aggressive, Nimble and Stable… these are the 3 words that come to mind when I am asked what I think about Pyranha’s new boat the 9R. I have paddled a lot of …

9R Review

This boat is receiving a huge amount of attention for good reason! I live on the west coast on North America and there are only two boats that people are currently paddling or want to paddle. They are the 9R and the Tuna. Everything else has the same limitations. Ok, now I understand that a …

9R Review – More than just a race boat!

I was lucky enough to try the 9R prototype back in August and ever since have been in love with the boat. I have had the opportunity to try it in a number of different situations – steep creeks to big volume, river running to racing to expeditions, and it just keeps surprising me by …
