I'm really very happy with the boat. I thought it would be difficult to stay upright since I have read it's an advanced boat and I'm a beginner, but that was not the case. I think because it fit so well and the weight is correctly distributed that it stays upright with minimal effort. When I do tip over it's usually because I've dug the paddle into the water at the wrong angle and not because of the boat. I'm still in very flat water so I can't comment on surfing yet but so far the boat has been perfect for me. I look forward to many years in this ski.
Highly recommend for smaller paddlers.
