Description

2019 brought the All-New Rockstar 4.0 freestyle kayak. With a complete overhaul of the hull shape, improved outfitting, the new hull shape combines improvements for reaching new heights on waves or in holes with outfitting aimed at keeping the boater comfortable, dry and continually evolving in the moves they can do.

Eric “EJ” Jackson, Jackson Kayak’s President and David Knight have reshaped the all-new Rockstar 4.0 hull to perform with the ability to go higher with bigger air with ease. The new Rockstar 4.0 hull is shaped for maneuvering in features, setting up easier, maximum thrust and clean release from the water for big moves. The new 4.0 has a shape and volume that allows for fast rotation speed, and more margin for error.

“The new volume will also mean less of the boat in water, more in the foam, more upstream launching and slightly narrower and more forgiving hull for landing.” Says Eric “EJ” Jackson, president of Jackson Kayaks. “This Rockstar is one inch longer than the previous one and has a tweaked drop-chine to give it speed and looseness when carving.”

Easy Edge to edge transfers that are reminiscent of the 2010 All-Star/Super Star, combined with massive air capabilities and smooth, predictable surfing makes it a ridiculously fun boat to paddle on a wave. The ends of this boat are slicey and easy to get under the water, making cartwheels, stalls, and linking moves together easier than ever before. Play boating in general will be a joy if you are just learning your first tricks, or you want to win the next World Championships, or just show off to friends.

The best part about the Rockstar is that it allows you to practice difficult moves on smaller features and flat water. You no longer need a 10' tall wave or a perfect hole to loop. This allows you to practice bigger moves in a variety of conditions, and ultimately you learn faster.

Design Features: 
  • Easy to initiate moves
  • Big pop for loops
  • Stiffer Hull
  • Great release from a wave
  • Comfortable


Cons: This boat is focused on the ultimate playboating experience. As a result, the Rockstar is more difficult to navigate down the river.
