Astro Stream 9'6"
After using a number of other plastic and inflatable boards on the Chilliwack River I can confidently say this one takes the cake. It's much lighter and therefore easier maneuver than plastic alternatives, but way stiffer and more durable than most inflatables I've used. Multiple laps in low water conditions and the bottom looks to be holding up well. The fin set-up provides decent tracking but is low-profile enough that I can run shallower sections when other paddlers are on their knees or walking. The handles make it easy to climb back on in a hurry if you swim.
