I have actually found it pretty easy to front surf. The planing hull and rounded bow help. It turns well which if you're new to creek boats you may find it a bit challenging to go straight. While the Large model fits my weight, the cockpit is a bit high and wide, limiting my points of contact with the boat.
The racheting backband is great. Very supportive. It's difficult to move the seat and your only able to do so by about an inch so its not really worth it. I'm not impressed with the hardware- screws seem to work loose, I have already lost a bulkhead nut and it is a non standard size. Plastic seems a bit thin compared to some other manufacturers yet boat is on the heavy end when compared to others. The drain plug design could be better (I've already lost one).
All in all a solid creeker, just a little lacking on the finishing touches.
