I have paddle my inferno for 2 years and I have learned how to playboat with it. It is a great boat and you got a good position for your knees. I am 195lbs and I don’t fit in an astro 54 but I fit comfortable in my inferno. It is very sharp for carving and it has a great tail for back surf and spin. Great river runner too and easy to paddle.
I am selling my Inferno because I’m getting too heavy and I’m at the highest limit for that boat. Riot says max 180 but at 195 I’m surfing and river running just great. But now at 200-205 it needs something a bit bigger.
