The point of the shorties is that they can be used in rapid water. You can run them up on rocks and get free by shifting wieght or twisting and make very sharp turns. They have very flat, thick bottoms to avoid holes and make sliding off things easy. They will run these in very fast, very rocky rivers as well as over drops (small waterfalls) that would destroy conventional kayaks.

Daniel,

Finally I found some pictures. The rest of the kayakers hit the resting point, except for the one in the blue kayak to the left. who found another place to rest; under the trees. The man paddling in the picture, the main character of this picture, had to go back to the others from twenty meters down below. Anyway - downstreams or upstreams; they both have their difficulties

Fun - yes the have and a system to help when they rotate under and over the water surface
