Amazing!

Not the best boat for your very first kayak... Little did I know, but I picked up on the sport quite well! Now I love it! Thanks to this boat!

Great Boat!

I love my stomper, This is my second Stomper and the small things I did not like on the first model they had already changed, like my seat moving around. Now I see they use two screws and seems to be greatly improved. Excellent boat!

This is my second white...

This is my second white water kayak. My first WW boat was a Dagger Crossfire. The Crossfire is 11'-0" long and 24" wide, and is an old school WW design. The Crossfire is a low volume boat uncomfortably cramped at my feet and difficult to be in for over 2 hours. The Stomper, in contrast, is the most comfortable kayak that I have.

The seating is very comfortable and there is room up front in it's large 80 gallon interior volume for my feet. The Liquid Logic company provides all that you need to fit out the boat to your own body. As far as handling, the boat turns on a dime, cuts into eddies on command, boofs everything in sight, and is a very predictable. It is not fast like the Crossfire was, but on par with the shorter WW kayaks of this type.

On rivers that have some flat water it can be hard work to keep up with the narrower sleeker boats like the Crossfire, so bear in mind that this boat is specifically designed for quick water where many quick turns may be required. As far as White Water kayaks go, in my opinion, this boat is at the top of the heap.

the best yaks around

Stomper 80- Great Creeker

I've had the boat out 3 times so far and I'm just getting used to it. It is maneuverable, extremely reactive, and as they say everywhere it pops up like a cork. I bought two boats and I have experience with Creek Boats and their reactive nature. The other boat was for my girlfriend and while she is an experienced kayaker, this is her Creek Boat. She had her first trip in the boat and I took her out on a flat water River to get used to the boat. She is an experienced kayaker in long touring boats and the Stomper initially threw her quite a curve. With a bit of encouragement and instruction she went from hating the nature of the boat to liking it. I have no doubt that she will love it in time. Once she gets used to it in quick water she will see the advantages of the Stomper in quick water. The Stomper is a great quick water Creeker.

Really happy with my decision to go with the stomper80!!!

After starting out paddling rec boats down class II and III for a year, decided to go with LL company after a lot of research....Thought about getting the remix as my first WW boat but decided on the stomper 80 due to the fact that my area had more creeks and safety fell of the boat...I feel like I made a great choice!!!!! Running class III IV now...I have just had great confidence in this boat !!! Needless to say it's a book machine and contrary to a couple reviews on other webpages this boat is fast,!!!! Great customer service all around got boat really fast!!! Doing business with LL is a breeze!!!!!!!

I am on the high-weight

I am on the high-weight side of the Stomper 80, but it handles well, and is easier to roll than other creek boats!

Boof Machine/ Drive with the knees

I went straight from the LL classic Huck to the Stomper. What an amazing difference a decade makes! I loved the huck for it's size and it's forgiving nature, but it was hard to get up and over just about everything and I was outgrowing it.
The Stomper is basically an autoboof boat. With a few strokes you can sail over even low gradient pillows the huck would plow into or stall out on. I've got a remix 59 now as well and even through it boofs great, the stomper doesn't need any coaxing.
The stomper responds well to good edging. Compared to other boats an aggressive edge into eddies is required otherwise it may just keep tracking along the eddy line; this isn't a bow-draw only eddy catcher, but once you get an aggressive edge, it will really whip you in there. The need for an aggressive edge is welcome in squirly water, the edges aren't as grabby as full planing hulls.

Compared to the remix, the stomper requires more correction when picking a line. The remix is "point and paddle" but I find myself paying more attention with the stomper; but this translates to plenty of room for last minute adjustments. It has almost playboat like maneuverabity and you can spin it on a dime compared to most creekers.
Overall, I love the stomper. It's snappier than the Jefe, while being more maneuverable than the remix and is the easiest boat to boof ever which makes it a hell of a lot of fun on any river with even the smallest of pillows. #boofeverything
