The Antix is the latest creation from Jackson Kayak, this boat is described by Jackson as “a new creeking/river running kayak that is fun, easy to paddle, runs the river like a dream but with some groove in the hull design to allow for continual play all the way down!” (www.jacksonkayak.com)
So I have been using the new Jackson Kayak Antix for the last few months down in Devon and it does not disappoint. This boat turns quickly, squirts, spins and splats rocks like a dream! While still being able to get you down the river with ease.
I normally paddle the large zen and I sit at the bottom of the weight category so have lots of volume so with the Antix I decided to go for a medium as I sit at the top end of the weight and wanted the boat to feel more sporty. The slicey stern makes it easy to stern-squirt and rock splat adding more fun to my local runs. With the fuller bow this boat is not only about spins and squirts but it has the volume up front to get you down the river.
I have used this boat on most of my local runs and it never disappoints to put a smile on my face, it’s definitely one of my go to boats at the moment. If you are looking to spice up your local run, the Antix is well worth a spin.
