The 2015 Jackson Zen is the river-running and creeking kayak that a whitewater kayaker needs in their quiver. This boat runs dry with ample bow rocker, rolls like a dream with flared sidewalls and the other special JK ingredients that make up a great rolling boat. It has a super fast hull that seems to float over the water and be impervious to boils, and other currents that try to take you off line, while sits nice and stable on the water making it a teacher’s dream boat for students learning to paddle.
