Description:
Radical asymmetrical squirt boat. Very hard to paddle, but fun. Virtually no rocker or volume.
User Comment:
Very difficult to paddle for most folks. Lack of rocker and asymetrical design keep things interesting. To date around 11 have been made.
Manufacturer Comment:
Hold your breath-you're going under-with the OXYGEN C-1! National Squirt C-1 Champion Corran Addison designed the OXYGEN to transition with blazing speed end over end. The OXYGEN'S screw maneuvers are powerful yet delicate in their balletic actions. As the OXYGEN C-1 sinks to new depths and pioneers unchartered C-1 waters it will create a host of new and challenging C-1 options and moves. Unique design features include concave wells in both the stern and ow, which center the foam piles to assist in blasting and locking into downtime". Asymmetry is found in three planes: width-side to side of the "center line; depth-either side of the "center line"; and size and location of the chines. To take advantage of the asymmetrical features the paddler switches their saddle or pedestal direction dependent upon whether they are a left or right handed paddler, or location of their river play spot (in other words, the bow becomes the stern and vice-versa). The hull is very flat, allowing quick spins and turns. The cockpit is raised considerably above the deck, accommodating any size paddler and providing comfort to the feet. This boat is so dynamic and responsive you'll toss your paddle away and use only your hands, particularly as you enter the deep mystery move zones. So, take a long deep breath of "OXYGEN" to show you the way to that elusive white water bubble of fun." - From the New Wave catalog
