Here is Daggers latest play machine.

Dagger JITSU 


Tested and approved by some of the world’s most skilled paddlers, the Jitsu excels in surfing and aerial moves on waves with volume proportions that allow for unparalleled hole play.

Dagger brings decades of experience and team-tested, paddler-proven heritage to freestyle kayaking in the Jitsu Series.

The Jitsu's unique rocker profile, hull to rail relationship through the stern, carefully distributed centralized volume, and slicey tips make three dimensional combination moves in advancing hole play easier while creating a seamless blend of speed, looseness, and release on waves. The double-step carving rail above the release edge also helps the boat to grip and drive on wave faces for very controlled carving. The Jitsu maintains snappy edge-to-edge transition yet it is arguably the loosest hull on the kayak market today.

Out-performing competitor freestyle kayaks downriver, the Jitsu is a solid all-around choice for those who want to enjoy big waves, holes on river, and freestyle competition too.

The 5.5 is the small-sized Jitsu, perfectly suited for a wide range of paddlers up to approx 70kg’s looking for excellent release off of waves, three-dimensional hole moves, and a comfortable fit
