Excursion 140 Reviews
I am new to kayaking and…
After a summer of paddling…
Hurricane has gotten a bad rap for the flexibility of its thermoform material. I admit, I did not like having the edges of the cockpit flex as I lowered myself into it. But these boats aren't really designed for dodging rocks off the coast of Maine. What they are good for is touring and hauling camping gear around languid Mid-Atlantic estuaries.
And they are fast off the line. While the Excursion might not be a racer, her light hull responds nicely to Newton's 3rd Law, and she gets up to cruising speed very quickly.
The Excursion is not my boat. Too wide. Doesn't feel right to me. But if you need a lightweight touring boat, it sure beats the price of glass, Kevlar or carbon.
