I bought a 25 yr old…

Submitted by: guest-paddler on 3/1/2022

I bought a 25 yr old windancer from craigslist. I am 5"11" and 225 lbs. I am not a novice kayaker, but not extremely experienced. The kayak is incredibly stable, let me say that again, incredibly stable. I have the kevlar one at 50lbs. It has a spacious cockpit for large paddlers, has good tracking and motion and allows good manuverability with rudder. I would overwhelmingly recommend this kayak for a beginner to intermediate kayaker, and if you are a large size paddler, so much the better. It is made extremely well, and my new to me kayak, looks almost new. They should be available on the used kayak market, from people who have learned from it and are moving on to faster, more tippy less stable ones.

I have paddled this kayak since purchasing it new in 1994. The kayak is very stable and is designed for expedition type trips, but is somewhat slow. The layup is heavy, but very durable. Hatches are on the smaller side and leak a bit, but are very user friendly. Overall, a great choice for longer trips on rough water.

This 6'2", 195 lb'er bought his first kayak, a glass 17'.5" x 24" shallow V Wind Dancer with rudder, about 10 years ago. My priority was a stable, volumous platform for fishing, photography and extended tripping. I've been paddling her ever since!

For a big boat she leans & carves nicely and tracks spot on. The cockpit is spacious for easy entry & exit. The peaked deck has certainly been an attribute in some pretty rough water even though it can catch some wind. As with all Eddyline boats the workmanship is exceptional and they just look great.

Although Eddyline stopped production of the Wind Dancer around 2002 to make way for lighter composite (Carbonlite/Modulus) boats, should you want a stable sturdy platform pick up a used one. But then again I haven't seen many of em for sale!


I just got my eddyline and it…

I just got my eddyline and it fits my body 5' 10", 145 but only just. Thigh pads are saving grace that allow my hips to help throw it around. It's a bit heavy for a fiberglass boat (58 lbs) I haven't had it out fully loaded so we'll see but on a slow river, calm lake and Lake Michigan it has handled great. good acceleration, fairly good turning, not great, slides down waves comfortably and knows when to break and when to rise oncoming waves. We'll see when I get more weight in it. For me it's a great boat but i'm sure there are better boats out there just not for this price.
