Riot Thunder

The Riot Thunder is designed with a flat hull and just the right amount of edge and volume to allow you to beautifully play whether that is eddie hopping, wave spinning or just plain river running. Point it up stream and it will ferry glide effortlessly. Downstream it has enough speed to punch through almost anything smoothly. The Thunder comes in 2 different sizes and Riot believe that whichever is the right size for you will be a good river runner to push your boundarys. It is also a great option for club paddlers wanting to progress their water skills in a kayak that is responsive and playful.
