Watch: Deep Dive and Test of Pyranha’s Latest Creek Boat, the Scorch

If you know, you know: Pyranha makes some of the best whitewater boats out there. Check out this deep dive into its newest kayak built for the gnarly stuff — and watch a seasoned paddler take it there.

Orton sees it as not only a new generation of craft for the British company, but also a callback to its roots. We’d take his word for it — based on this exhaustive yet adroit review, he’s done his part to put it through its paces.
