As each generation of paddler has passed down skill and knowledge,
the next has taken a step beyond them to rivers once thought of as
The Scorch is the culmination of decades of design advancements
mirroring this paddler progression, combining and refi ning features
from industry-leading designs like the 9R (waterline length, bow
rocker), Machno (volume and deck profi le), and Burn (planing hull
with hard edge); the hybrid rocker profi le is effi cient on the move
and planes over the burliest of features, gets the stern out of your
way on the lip of drops, and ensures you skip out over whatever lies
below; a fi ne balance of length and edge carries speed and maintains
precise lines, even in boily, unpredictable water; and the generous but
carefully tailored volume keeps you on top of the water.
Confi dent, dry, and nimble, the Scorch delivers what it takes to
+ Progressive Bow Rocker – further refi nement on the feature which
created that famous 9R skip-out.
+ Stern Kick Rocker – making a 10ft boat boof like an 8ft one.
+ Planing Hull with Hard Edge – just another way in which the Scorch
has the edge, except this one is literal.
+ Long waterline length – the rule book has been thrown out; the
Scorch’s waterline length gives you the speed and capacity to get
the job done and have fun while you’re at it.
+ Rounded deck peak – sheds water effi ciently for controlled
resurfacing, and enables almost-eff ortless rolling.
+ Volume profi le – generous volume, distributed strategically across
the boat length to give a boat that fi nds the surface of the water and
not your elbows.
