Re: Anyone tried a pyranha ozone yet?

Brilliant. I’m waiting for my large ozone, but no deliveries til end of lockdown I guess. The large loki was difficult for me to keep under control on class 3, hopefully this will behave a bit better.

Re: Anyone tried a pyranha ozone yet?

Jou! Got my new Ozone large home today. Big and comfy! I am 191 cm (6´3^English?), feet 11,5 Astral Hiyaks, and I can very comfortably sit in with my Hiyaks, and I had to even raise the seat a little bit! So, totally a big and comfortable boat to sit in. Tomorrow a test paddling from our own place,...

Re: Anyone tried a pyranha ozone yet?

Thanks for the responses, I’ve got a ripper, it is fun, but think the ozone looks great for grade 2 club runs and standing waves. The Loki was too tight for me, I like the 4 fun but hey I’m a sucker for marketing and the price just got dropped by 10%, so a large ozone on order, as I’m a big lad.

Anyone tried a pyranha ozone yet?

So, has anyone who’s not a rep bought or tried out a Pyranha ozone yet? How was it? Any comparison to other Pyranha playboats such as the Loki, Jed etc? Is it all hype or is the ozone something special, do tell!

Re: Squeezing into a surf kayak

Yeah same as posted on Scottish surf kayak Facebook page. I spoke with Pete at mega kayaks, and decided to go with a banshee, but with the higher braces of the Edge fitted to it, and leave the centre foam out initially - it’s in the xtech so he said it’s plenty strong enough. All of that should give...

Squeezing into a surf kayak

I’m looking to get a mega banshee, at 5’11 and 107kg, which on paper should be OK. Have sat in one and managed to get my thunder thighs in, but it was a contortion act. This will be my first surf boat, so only comparison I have is river boats which are so much roomier. Is it normal for big guys to s...

Help choosing playboat for big guy

I’m 5’11, 107kg (236lb). Want my first playboat - probs more for surfing (river) but I’d like to have a crack at getting it on end and air time. I’m looking locally at a second hand large pyranha Molan which I’ve tried on grade 2 and is OK but have to lean back a bit or the bow pearls even on the fl...

Re: Back deck roll

You mention surfing, if this is in the sea then your probably already doing a back deck roll but not realising. I’m only just trying out grade 3 and surfing at the sea, not big waves, if I tip I just wait for the wave to pass and do a sweep roll but interesting if a back deck roll is useful on bigg...

Re: Back deck roll

Thanks for sharing your experience, think I’ll have a go at back deck and reverse screw roll and then play around with them on easy water

Back deck roll

I’m in a Pyranha ripper, running rivers mostly with a bit of sea surfing. For those in river boats not play boats, is the back deck roll something you use on grade 3 up or not so much? Looks a fun one to learn but day to day wondered how useful it is and how often you use it for non playboaters on w...
