Linda has this to say:
"I've paddled the Catalyst a few times. I liked it as it's stable but still edges and performs like a white water boat should. I played around on it, trying to get it to eddie hop and play in various small holes. It's possible to boff if you get it just right but is good to help build confidence as you just fall off if you get it wrong."
