Large U shaped backrest from Alpacka

Post by btownmountain » Thu May 19, 2016 9:12 am

Hey guys,

In the market for a new Alpacka this season since they are now making self bailing floors and I noticed something odd on the alpacka website on the self bailer page: The boats in the photo have a wrap around inflatable backrest. I've never seen this before and speaking from experience, I call tell you one of the only annoying parts on my current Llama is the very small tube shaped backrest. Something large and U shaped would be a great upgrade.

Anyone know if this is the new standard backrest?

This is the link. Its the photo with the two red boats. Notice the U shaped backrest.

I could be wrong as I haven't paddled one, but that photo appears to be one of the Alpacalypse whitewater-specific boats.
