Great beginners recreational kayak. This was the first kayak myself and my wife bought and still use out on the lakes and slow moving rivers. It has a rear hatch but no bulkheads or sealed watertight spaces so dry bags are a must. The kayak is very stable and great for a beginner and is quite roomy. The only negatives for myself and my wife are the seats are not that comfortable.
this is my first kayak and it works great, seat is ok could be better, dry storage would be nice to have also, but for the price brand new it was well worth the buy, i will keep this kayak for long time, I'm thinking of buying an blue with white Sunrise for an extra person can kayak with me, yes im buying another one, very stable on the water, and have 2 nice ones for the price of one fancy one
Tracking is comparable to the Old Town Loon 111 I had previously rented, which isn't bad for a 10 foot yak. It will drift a bit once you stop paddling, but stays straight with minimal effort. I'm still working on technique so I think that speaks well for the boat. It's light (and so am I) so it does get moved around by the wind. Plenty of storage space front and rear, but no dry storage, so have a dry bag. Foot pedals are adjustable. Nice seat for the price range, though my bony butt did get a little sore after a few hours.
Overall I'm very happy with this kayak, seeing as it's my first one. Will probably upgrade to a 12-13' rec or touring yak in a year or two.
