This is an announcement to let folks know that Riot Kayaks has launched their newly revised web site. Check out all the new info on the 2007 whitewater line at www.RiotKayaks.com . You will find that Riot is very modest and objective with their boat recommendations. They are not going to tell you that all of their boats are "the only one" for you, regardless of size, skill level and preference. If Riot does have a boat for you they will give you their best recommendation for what suits you best, whether you are 150 lbs and paddle small creeks or 250 and paddle big water. Riot offers one of the most complete lines of kayaks in the world and it gets better every year.
Find out all the specs on the new Astro 58 , the big guy version of our most popular play boat
(16 year old, Alan Young does the "magic trick" in his Astro 58)
and the Thunder 65 , our new "all river" kayak, built with the beginner/intermediate river runner or the more advanced playful creek paddler in mind.
(Joey Hall runs the Green in the Thunder 65)
All Riot boats are in stores now. Visit our Dealer Request page to locate your closest Riot Kayaks dealership and try out a demo boat.
