The Phoenix is a playboat with characteristics of a surf kayak.  The goal was to have a playboat with more speed and drive for surfing river waves; at the time most modern playboats were designed to bounce off the face of the wave.  While this is a lot of fun I was brainstorming of a boat that would accelerate out of a bottom turn, hit the shoulder and back to the pocket very fast.   The challenge was to not go to far and have the boat be too hard to paddle down river.  This boat is forgiving enough to play in both hole and on waves however you will find it to excel on a wave with a good size wave face with some height and a friendly break.
