I've had this kayak for about two summers, going on my third. Don't really use it for long distance things, but for tooling around by the beach many times each day. Moderately comfortable seat and foot pegs are a great feature! A lot of room inside, and this kayak is very sturdy, even in those times that the lake gets a bit choppy! Overall, I think this kayak is just great, and I don't plan on stepping up a level anytime soon, if EVER!
