The amazing thing with the Inuk is how much is glides in the water. Checking and comparing hydrostatic figures of different kayaks, the Inuk has the same efficiency at slow speeds of the better 16 ft. kayaks designs. It gets better past 6 mph. I've only paddled the Inuk in 4-6 ft. waves and I thought I was to capsize (I'm flat water paddler) a hundred times but did not! The very low deck behind the cockpit is a big plus for re-mount or roll.
Inuk is definitely for an intermediate or advanced kayaker. I rate it as 1 of the top 3 kayaks I've owned and tested. It's a great kayak design for me.
