The Super Puma is smooth and agile on the water. Great size for R2 and some gear. Or a R5 day trip. With the narrow beam it fits well on top of my Subaru, and the boat is light enough for two people to easily manage. With a thwart in the center, the boat can be turtled solo down the trail to the put-in. Love this raft.

I've had this boat for a year now and I love it, taken it down several rivers in Colorado and Utah. Extremely fun for anything from R2 to R5. Small and nimble enough to handle smaller rivers like the Eagle, Blue and Poudre but handled Westwater Canyon on the Colorado like a dream with an R3 crew. The rocker shape made for some of the most fun I've ever had on that stretch! Rigging it out with an oar frame now and the smaller size is making things a bit tricky, most gear (frames, dryboxes, etc.) are not really made for such a narrow interior. Still, the versatility of the boat is incredible. So far I've been really impressed with the material and craftsmanship as well.

I own a Super Puma. I set it up the frame with a crossbar and seat towards the stern for the oarsman and a cooler between two crossbars fore of the mid-point for one fisherman. For two fellas drifting on the Kenai River in Alaska it is perfect. The area aft of the oarsman is perfect for two large drybags for overnight gear. Occasionally I have put a second fishing buddy back their on the stern tube for day trips although it turn the boat into a bit of a "lunker" and I lose a lot of agility, if that was something I did regularly I would definitely go to the Super Duper Puma. I really enjoy having a quality fishing rig that doesn't require a trailer and half of my driveway.

I love this boat. Makes easier class II and class III runs more challenging and exciting, while remaining stable enough running big class V drops.

I'm a novice rafter and purchased the Super Puma in hopes for a cheaper raft that could handle class 4 rapids with 4 or 5 passengers. In the few weeks I've owned it, it has proved it's worth. Easily handling the N. Santiam (class 3), Clackamas (class 3-4), and the White Salmon (class 3-5). With a little experience and the right safety equipment this raft is ready for most of the raftable rivers of the Northwest.

Fished with Don Baylor[owner of Aquatic Resource Consulting ] this past week .He not only fished but he rowed the boat and he was amazed how it was so easy to ferry the boat across the river and to set up for the new position to fish. He said that there was no comparison to other boats that he had rowed . He was also very impressed with the casting deck and it's stability , he said he was a lot less tired at the end of the day. So as you can see that there is a pattern with all the people that I asked about the boat . They liked the stability ,they liked the ride, ease of handling and the frame set up for fishing.
The 13'1" Super Puma is a larger version of the Puma, offering more space for friends and gear - up to three thwarts and five paddlers. This boat is an AIRE favorite, it makes an awesome whitewater paddleboat and a great rowing rig for two people and lightweight gear. The Super Puma’s continuous smooth bottom makes it handle like a kayak or a slick hulled drift boat. It’s equally adept at surfing or holding still above a monster fishing hole, and the narrow beam allows the rafts to descend smaller rivers and creeks than our more conventional sized rafts.

The Super Puma is for you if:

  • - You want a little boat for R2-R5

  • - You prefer small technical rivers but still want a 13' raft for some of the bigger rivers too

  • - You plan to rig this up with our fishing frame
