the Liquid Logic Stomper

Paddled the Stomper 80 on Saturday (on the Sandy Gorge) and really enjoyed it. That's the first modern creek boat that I have liked in about a decade. Finally! My beef with most modern creek boats is that they are 1) too stable 2) too slow and 3) too pudgy. I like the boat to lean easily, and to have more secondary stability than primary. I like the boat to have a wee bit of forward glide, and an edge or two that I can engage. The stomper does all of this. My congratulations to Shane and Woody for creating a planing hull creeker with class.
