Snap Dragon Spray Skirts

July 3, 2019
A Repost from 2013 https://cksblog.com/2013/04/kyle-smith-reviews-the-snapdragon-armortex-exp-sprayskirt/ Helmet. Check. PFD. Check. Paddle. Check. Boat. Check.

Spray decks, no matter how durable they are to begin with, eventually wear out… View Article

HEAD TO HEAD: Zeta vs. Strutter Helmets

July 1, 2019
All in all, these are both fantastic class I-IV helmets. They are top of the line in safety for their coverage and made by renowned companies. Choosing between them comes down to your style and head shape. A rounder head should go with the Zeta and a narrow head should go with the Strutter. Don’t forget to let your style make the decision for you because it’s really all about looking good on the river.

2018 Jackson Zen 2.0 Review

June 12, 2019
For the “casual kayaker” the Zen was forgiving and comfortable right from the start due to it’s user-friendly outfitting. Also, due to the lack of holes in the boat construction, it’s dry as a bone. We love the roll-ability of the Zen’s rounded design.

Pyranha 9R Test Drive – By Andre Spino-Smith

March 5, 2018
By Andre Spino-Smith The Pyranha 9R truly shines in big, powerful whitewater. Anyone who paddles on higher volume rivers knows that hitting lines, catching eddies and generally staying in control requires a deceptively large amount of effort. The Pyranha Kayaks 9R, especially when compared to the Nomad (which I’ve paddled for the last 10+ years)… View Article

First Look: 2017 Jackson Kayak Antix Review

March 10, 2017
2017 Jackson Kayak Antix Review I remember walking into the CKS Warehouse last summer and seeing a lime green mutant looking Jackson Kayak sitting on the front office desk.
