The Happy Seat/Happy Thruster Combo is the ticket for any playboater looking to improve their ride substantially. I won the World Championships doing the biggest loops of the comp, even in finals. The Happy Thruster/Seat, in combination with you playboat is a dream come true for any paddler. Try it out and you’ll never go back! I haven’t paddled my playboat without the Happy Seat since I designed it in the fall. When wave surfing I have just enough air in the Happy Thruster to act like an implosion prevention device, and when in a hole, I blow it up for major air!
