Wavesport Recon 83 + Recon 93 creek boat
Recon is a military term for exploring unknown territory and unfriendly situations. While the creeks may call out to us, the river’s forces don’t always welcome our exploration. Performing at the highest levels of boating, the Recon handles technical boating and big water efficiently, giving the paddler confidence.
The continuous rocker profile combined with a unique volume distribution makes this design very fast and easy to boof. The unique, upswept bow shape make the Recon resurface quickly when blasting through holes, while the domed stern deck minimises back-ending in holes and drops. The full stern chine combined with the generous side wall flare provides superb secondary stability and substantial control when carving, ferrying or tracking. The Recon is also equipped with seven rescue points and strategically-placed soft grip handles for greater accessibility. It’s been designed for intermediate and advanced paddlers who want ‘best-in-class’ performance and maximum safety, while enjoying both multi-day river trips and tackling grade 4 – 5+ rapids. Two boat sizes available – Recon 83 and Recon 93.
