The term freeride is defined as going without a set course, goals or rules. It means taking the most creative line possible. The design concepts of the Freeride 57 and 67 allow the paddler to take full advantage of the total play potential of any river or play park with complete comfort and confidence. Be it surfing smooth carved lines on the face of a wave, throwing well balanced precision cartwheels and loops, or splatting and squirting your way down the river, the Freeride is designed to create that uncharted line.
The Freeride is super stable, fast, easy to surf, easy to roll, incredibly comfortable, and excels in playboating as well as river running. The boat is really great for those just getting into playboating as well as those who are seasoned and want to take advantage of all river features. If you are new to playboating and you have been in a playboat before, the first things you will probably notice is the stellar stability, comfort and the way it handles running the river. As you develop your skills, you will be able to really take advantage of the Freeride features. If you are a seasoned playboater, you will also notice the stability and comfort but you will also recognize the speed and agility the Freeride brings to the table.

Yes, you can adjust the set back and forth as well as the foot braces and thigh braces to get the perfect fit for you. The boat also comes with hip pads with shims to give you a comfortable fit at the hips. We also offer a seat riser pad (APAD006) that slides underneath the sewn seat glove to lift you up, if you prefer to be higher up in the boat.
