The 4th Generation of the most decorated freestyle/playboat design ever made takes freestyle kayaking to new heights. Comfort: Slip into the boat and you’ll immediately feel the improved comfort, foot-room, knee pockets, and the view from the cockpit. The world’s lightest plastic freestyle kayak. Slightly bigger than 2016 version overall. The two main venues Jackson designed this boat to excel are on waves and in holes.
NEW knee pockets // “Locked and loaded” knee pockets for positive control of your kayak.
MORE Volume // More volume than any other kayak made for bigger air.
NEW seat position // Seat now with an extra 3/4” adjustability forwards.
NEW narrower hull // Hull design is now narrower, for increased speed, and bigger air on waves.
LIGHTER // New design and outfitting under 30 pounds; strong and light!
NEW stern shape // Shaped stern for quick release on wave moves, and stays on the surface well.
Durability // The shape of the bow and stern takes hits and hold strong. While shallow looping holes are abusive to any boat, you’ll be glad you are in this one when you hit hard.
Drier Ride // Zero holes drilled into this new Rock Star on the outside where it can leak. Add in one of the driest cockpit rim designs possible and you can paddle without water in your boat.
Big Air // Big Air “Huge” Bonuses have become easier. If you are just learning to loop, this boat will launch you higher than any other design, giving you the time and air to complete your first loops. The bow and stern of this boat are carefully shaped to combine a slicey, easy-to-move-around shape with an explosive thrust upwards and a clean release from the water.
Retentiveness // Sticking moves is not only fun, but critical in competition. The Rock Star 4.0 has the side view shape, the volume, and fast rotation speed to give you more margin for error than ever before. Less boat in green water, more in the foam, more upstream launching, and slightly narrower and more forgiving hull for landing makes sure you spend your time in the hole, not in the eddy.
Speed // 1” longer than the Rock Star 3.0 with an adjusted rocker profile that works across more wave shapes and speeds than the previous model to allow you to drop into just about any wave with more speed and potential energy for take-offs.
