Description: Third and best of the Zurflieh series of slalom boat derived squirt boats. Also a "master cut" version shortened by 12" or more. It is essentially an Aerobat that was cut differently.
User Comment: Despite what the catalog said, the boat was actually the third in a series of boats by Peter Zurflieh, who also designed the Descender. The Acrobat was created from a tweaked Aerobat.
Manufacturer Comment: The ACROBAT C-1 is the first squirt designed by world slalom champions David Hearn and Jon Lugbill, initiators of the original squirt. This is the ultimate C-1 play boat, performing the same squirt techniques as the kayaks. This low volume boat is the first C-1 to dive into mystery moves while its 29 in width maintains its stability. The ACROBAT performs transition moves, such as cartwheels and screwups, twice as fast and twice as easy as any other C-1. It also carves on a wave like a surfboard, creating rooster tails of spray. The 11'6" ACROBAT has a fast cruising speed and does not dive during upstream paddling. This is THE boat for C-1 paddlers who want maximum performances during playing. Expert paddlers will enjoy its dynamic moves during river running. (from the New Wave catalog)
