I have a buddy who has a composite surf specific kayak. He says it's awesome at the beach. It's real funky on the river though. I love my Viper C-1 in the ocean. Getting out past the breakers can be tough.

Thanks for the tip! I just ordered the short sleeve. $35 is a steal.
My top two are the Viper and Sith. Neither are under rated. The Sith is my favorite for surfing. I've been asked if it was designed for my local wave. The Viper is fast, surf's well on the river and ocean, plus I can stern squirt it on flatwater. It's my go to boat for big, scary stuff. How many Amo...
Jim, my old viper was a winter port boat. After I cracked it, I picked up a used New Wave Viper. If I remember correctly, it's 10lbs. heavier than the winter port. I talked to Paul S. about building a lighter one. He said no problem. It's a great design, I just don't paddle enough these days to just...
I'm with you on the speed. I don't think I'd want it for big stuff. I tend to pick up the speed when I get scared. Lol. The storm chaser is faster than my Sith, but no match for my vipers or 4 meter vajda nova. Other than the inability to pivot, I think the storm chaser is a darned good all around b...
I was able to spend a lunch break in a storm chaser at my local park and play spot. I was pleasantly surprised by how well it surfed. My Sith surfs better, but the Storm Chaser probably does most everything else better.

For my c1's with bulkheads I put a bungee cord through the bulkhead. Put a fender washer against the front of the bulkhead, then tie your knot. Mine are set up to hold a 32oz. Gatorade bottle. https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1 ... 9569768609
Ditto on PAC's thoughts. I was only in one for a few minutes a long time ago. It requires more skill than your Probe. Folks who want to just cruise the river will probably not enjoy this boat. I only had a small wave to try it on. I thought it was responsive and would like to try one on a bigger fea...
I was lucky enough to catch Bob headed South one Thanksgiving many years ago. He met me at my local river for a demo. I think it's essentially a narrowed cascade. It's faster and way more responsive than the cascade. Probably a little less stable. You'll love the light weight both on and off the wat...
