The Braaap has been a huge success. Paddlers love the speed, agility, and river running performance that the rocker profile and slalom hull design has exposed. The one thing that some paddlers have asked for in the Braaap is a more playful stern that engages the water dynamically. The Party Braaap has the same hull and bow design as the Braaap. The difference is that 2.5 gallons less volume in the stern deck making it concave. That significant drop in volume makes the Party Braaap a stern squirting, wall splatting, surfing machine while still being a pinpoint accurate river runner. Now you have a choice! A more full volume performance river runner in the Braaap or a more playful river runner in the Party Braaap.
The responsive hull, the ease of rolling and the Party Braaap’s light weight create an excellent learning platform for novice paddlers while the speed and agility of the Party Braaap provide experienced boaters with downriver tactical controls. The Party Braaap has enough volume for all but your most challenging runs, yet it is small enough to control in the air, pivot turn, and surf like a dream. Once you dial this boat in, you will also find yourself tapping into squirts and splats.
