This Little Hero whitewater kayak is the 2012 version in the "Rasta" colors. It is a mix between a creek boat and a river runner.
Although Jackson touted this as a boat for "youth", it is a fantastic kayak for any adult that is under 150 pounds.
I originally started with the fullsize Hero which was just too big and heavy for me. As soon as I got in this Little Hero, it felt right. It rolls like a dream and is super stable and forgiving. It is outfitted with the shock-absorbing bulkhead, not the foot pegs: the bulkhead is fantastic and comfy and secure on the feet. No danger of ankle bashing. It also has the newer style Jackson seat, not Sweet Cheeks. It also comes with two float bags. I also have a Bomber sprayskirt in like new condition that fits this boat perfectly for $60. I have a separate CL ad for the skirt.
I really hate to part with this boat. It is beautiful and fun! Unfortunately I acquired a serious shoulder injury (nothing to do with boating) and I can't boat in a hard shell anymore.
No deep gouges, no oil canning, no phantom rides. In really excellent shape.
If you can see this ad, it is still available. I can deliver to Boulder or even eastern Summit County. Texting me will get the fastest response.
