The elevated edges on the planing hull worked great for carving back and forth, and saved me from getting munched a couple of times in the hole that I was side surfing. The only problem that I had was trying to bow stall the Booster. The grooves in the deck allow water to just slide right off, making it difficult to hold the bow under for any length of time. However, this might be a technique problem too.
As far as outfitting goes, the Pro-fit system that came with my boat is great. The ratchets dialed in right away for the backband and thigh braces, while the hip pads were infinitely adjustable with some minicell and a screwdriver.
I would highly recommend this boat for an all around river runner at my size.
