People's Choice Award - Wild and Scenic Environmental Film festival
The Marsyangdi River of Nepal, the Brahmaputra River in India and the White Nile River in Uganda are all threatened or are currently being destroyed by large scale hydroelectric projects. The Last Descent follows a small group of world class whitewater kayakers with kayaks packed with food and camping gear, on what could be the last journey down each of these rivers. The film ends in California with a trip down the Tuolumne River and a look at the movement to restore Hetch Hetchy valley in Yosemite National Park.
Dagger brings decades of experience and team-tested, paddler-proven heritage to freestyle kayaking in the Jitsu Series.
The Jitsu's unique rocker profile, hull to rail relationship through the stern, carefully distributed centralized volume, and slicey tips make three dimensional combination moves in advancing hole play easier while creating a seamless blend of speed, looseness, and release on waves. The double-step carving rail above the release edge also helps the boat to grip and drive on wave faces for very controlled carving. The Jitsu maintains snappy edge-to-edge transition yet it is arguably the loosest hull on the kayak market today.
Out-performing competitor freestyle kayaks downriver, the Jitsu is a solid all-around choice for those who want to enjoy big waves, holes on river, and freestyle competition too.
The 5.9 is the mid-sized Jitsu, perfectly suited for a wide range of paddlers looking for excellent release off of waves, three-dimensional hole moves, and a comfortable fit
"Best Gear for the Water"- The Active Times, 2013
The Jed isn't like the others; it's longer than its competitors,
which allows for a more fluid distribution of volume and
comparatively slicy ends for easier trick initiation. Extra length
also makes the Jed faster on a wave and smoother on end in a hole. A
unique 'V-Chine' in the hull at the stern frees up the back end for
spins and edge transitions while surfing, and also adds to the
dynamic speed on a wave. Smooth transition of volume to the core of
the boat produces some incredible pop in a hole and the deceptively
smooth lines over all give an obscenely fast and aggressive ride on
Over the past few years Pyranha has seen some amazing displays of
freestyle talent from paddlers using the Jed, ranging from
competition wins to new and exciting combo moves, but what they are
most proud of is the doors that the Jed has opened to everyone in
Freestyle; from the Pro looking to push the boundaries of the sport
to the beginner looking to hit their first vertical ends. The Jed is
Pyranha's best and most proven freestyle design, and it's not done
The Shiva – Ultimate Steep Creeker
The Shiva has a rounded hull, soft stern chines, a high bow rocker
and loads of volume in the bow and stern. These features give you
softer landings on big drops, rear driving force when you want it,
awesome boofability and resurfacing capability. The rounded and high
deck, with a high centre of volume, counters a low centre of gravity
for easy rollability. If you are running big drops and pushing harder
lines the Shiva is the one you want.
The third generation Burn is the latest in Pyranha's long line of
cutting edge river runners. Paddlers have come to rely on the Burn's
combination of playful hull, precise edges and forgiving deck profile
for everything from the beginnings of whitewater to Class V creeks.
The new Burn refines these features further to give you more speed
and drive, more precise tracking in turbulent water and effortless
boofs. The Burn's combination of stability and precision make it a
proven all round performer. Whether you are a beginner running Class
II or an expert firing up big drops.
