The Stomper follows the long lineage of outstanding creek designs at Liquidlogic.
Its beginning and history start here on our home river, the Green. Developing the Stomper began by blending the speed, stability and rolling ability of the Remix Series with the bomber construction, safety, and boofability of the Jefe Series. This combination, coupled with the Stomper's playful semi-planing hull will give you the confidence to maximize your experience on your local run and take you far into your paddling future.
Design 1: Semi-Planing Hull = effortless turning in any situation
Design 2: Chamfered Edges = carving edges that snap into eddies but don't trip you up
Design 3: Smooth Transition Rocker Profile = gives the Stomper its speed
Design 4: Rounded side wall = incredible stability
Design 5: Crowned Deck = quick and easy surfacing from under water
Design 6: Big Bow Rocker = get your bow up and over anything
Design 7: New Seat System = easier access to the stern of the boat for storage
Design 8: Bad Ass Outfitting = the most comfortable outfitting in the industry
Design 9: Aircraft grade aluminum security bars
Design 10: Industry leading Aquatuff plastic

The Stomper is an easy to paddle, no brainer boofer, thats easy to roll. We would describe it as more of a drifter while the Flying Squirrel is a "driver" which is faster and may be slightly harder to boof.
Novice - Super easy to roll with confidence inspiring stability which makes paddling through your first rapids easy. It's also an easy to turn platform to help with manuverability. Intermediate- All the same characteristics apply from the novice paddler info but add in the stellar boofability for stomping your first drops. Gnar Tech - Ultra manuverable for super steep, tight and technical drops. More stable and forgiving edges for paddling in extreme conditions.
If you are between the two weight ranges, the Stomper 80 is going to be a smaller, more playful boat. The small volume will be be good on smaller creeks and rivers but may be somewhat of a hinderence when paddling larger volume rivers.
