Reconnaissance is the military term for exploring beyond the area occupied by friendly forces. While the creeks may call out to us, the forces of the river don’t always welcome our exploration. The Recon handles creeks and rivers efficiently, confidently and safely, with boofability worthy of a new term. The Recon will get paddlers down river safely while enhancing a paddler's confidence and skill sets in the process.  

The continuous rocker profile combined with the unique distribution of volume makes this design very fast and easy to boof. The unique volume in the bow and its pronounced, upswept shape make the Recon resurface and unload water quickly when blasting through holes, while the domed stern deck minimises back-ending in holes and drops.  The location of the full stern chine combined with the generous side wall flare provides superb secondary stability and substantial control when carving, ferrying, or tracking.  The Recon is also equipped with seven points of rescue and strategically placed soft grip handles for greater accessibility. The Recon was designed for intermediate and advanced paddlers who want best-in-class performance and while enjoying both multi-day river trips and tackling class IV & V+ rapids. 

Our WhiteOut Outfitting uses our Standard Lightweight Seat System and includes our stylish, marine vinyl white pads on the seat, backband, hip pads and thigh grips. The seat incorporates our step-out pillar with easy-grip handle - for easy carrying and efficiency in the step-out motion.  Making this WhiteOut version the ideal outfitting comb for those that want to keep weight down and still have an extra level of safety.
