The Varun Mystery

On first appearances the Varun might confuse, it’s a little bit of a freestyler, but you probably won’t see people seriously competing it, mixed up with a little bit of a river runner means its main niche is bigger volume rivers where you need some speed, but want to stop and throw down some big moves, and it certainly moves in the right hands – Think Nile or Zambezi style rivers to see the full potential but the Varun can work every single feature of your everyday play run…

So, for a little inspiration here’s a collection of some of the stunning places the Varun has been…
