The Recon Self-Bailing has opened up another avenue of enjoying the river for me. I can paddle my local creek at a lower volume than I could with a kayak, yet still have fun. It handles small drops, low volume creeks, and high volume rivers well. I can guide beginner paddlers with little river running experience down a river since the boats are stable and easy to paddle and you are not “inside” the boat, like a kayak.
The Nirvana Self-Bailing is an all season boat perfect for travel and exploring any class of river. Since purchasing the Nirvana Self Bailer I have navigated rivers up to class 4 in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, and Washington!
The self-bailer is great for re-entry when scouting, and after some practice is especially good for re-entering the boat mid-rapid after a flip. I love having the self bailer for hot summer days, and after throwing on the drysuit the self bailer makes for added fun in whitewater.
I’m addicted to whitewater. The Nirvana Spraydeck offers everything I need to have fun on the river. The spraydeck keeps me dry and warm and due to its light weight and small pack size traveling around the world is now super easy compared to a kayak.
My packraft is always and everywhere with me, now I do not have to go without a flow.
I’m a huge fan of the Nirvana Self-Bailing. I love the self-bailer because you can easily hop in and out, and if you flip, it’s possible to get back in mid-rapid - as was the case for me when paddling some of the larger waves on the Grand Canyon.
