Jackson Kayak Antix 2.0 M

Medium Jackson Kayak Antix 2.0 Full Interview (Review)

The antix 2.0 is no doubt one of the hottest boats in the Jackson Kayak lineup and I often get asked to borrow either my medium or small. A Long Creek, South Carolina local, Alma Alberghini, AKA “Scooter” took my medium out a number of times to the Tallulah River and the Chattooga River (Class IV-V rapids) to see if this is the boat for her. 

Watch the full interview to get Scooter’s thoughts and opinions on testing out the antix 2.0 for her first time.

Key Moments:

Initial thoughts of the boat: Really likes how it ferries, faster than the 1.0, boofs well.

Catching eddies: really fun to find and catch small eddies

Knee position: higher and more aggressive compared to the 1.0

Running rapids: Can get creative, turns really well, and allows you to change your angle very quickly

Boofing: “Boofs like a dream!”

Creeker over the 2.0: When there are really big, retentive holes

Ferrying: Super responsive, can look where you want to go and it just goes

Sizing: Crystal breaks down her size and what she paddles and Scooter breaks down her size and why she would go with a medium


I started kayaking in Wisconsin of all places, because this is where I am from. I then moved to San Diego and took on kayak surfing along with heading to the Kern River when water was available. I then made the move to Asheville, NC and have been hooked on this sport since my Wisconsin days. With whatever it is that you do, do it because you love it, not because society tells you should or for other outside factors. Don't simply exist, live!
