/ AIRE Force Inflatable Kayak
- SMStacy M.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 stars5 months agoFun responsive inflatable!
Recently brought this down the Grand Canyon, and was an awesome boat for the roaring twenties. I won’t lie, I got crushed like a baby chicken in a couple big holes….but the boat itself responds to paddler input very well, and pops out of most holes and if you feel inclined….easy to surf. Very quick to inflate and deflate.

I've been kayaking since the early 80s and my back is no longer what it was. I've sold my beloved hardshell kayak that I paddled on rivers for the past 25 years from the Rogue, McKenzie, North Santiam, White Salmon, Snake, Salmon, North Umpqua, North Fork of the Willamette, and more. At the same time, I had an Aire Lynx that I've used as a boat for friends or family to paddle on trips with me. Last year I tried a friend's Aire Force and felt like this was the solution to my problems at long last. A great handling boat that gives me some of the performance of my hardshell in terms of carving in and out of eddies, making quick maneuvers, paddling upstream to catch a wave, and some light surfing. It handles great in big holes since it doesn't fill up like a Lynx, and is shorter and more of a playboat. It also doesn't require the Fish and Wildlife tags in Oregon since under 10' which is a bonus.
