Step into the Pyranha Shiva Kayak when you set out to run that steep, drop filled creek you've been scoping the past few summers. Soft stern chines, a rounded hull, and progressive rocker gives this boat a forgiving feel on the water and the capability to turn big drops into smooth landings. A little less playful than the Nano and a little less precise from bow to stern than the Burn, the Shiva shines when it comes to speed and agility in steeps and rock filled sections of the creek. Additional bow and stern volume, while primarily there to help you punch through waves and holes, also helps you resurface quickly and avoid getting pushed around in big water. A high center of volume and low center of gravity allow you to quickly tip the Shiva on edge, lean back, and engage the stern based steering provided by the stern chine lines and release edge. A comfortable C4S seat, adjustable hip pads, back band, thigh grips, and full plate footrests ensure you can get the fit you want for your particular size and paddling style. Aluminum safety lash points help keep you safe in rescue situations.
