This kayak is a greenland…

Submitted by: paddler231807 on 9/19/2006
This kayak is a greenland style with a very low afterdeck and a cockpit raised in the front.

A little bit hard to turn (I have the "agile" version which should be the easiest to turn) but very good tracking and due to low decks no influence from wind. The easiest boat I have ever rolled; I have the tilting seat which makes so easy and fun the layback. It handles very well in the waves with a strong tendency to go through them instead of climbing on them. Speed is the major asset. Look and finishing just perfect. Hatches and skeg from Valley. Cockpit is raised in the front and this is good for easy entering and to go through waves with minor pressur of water against spraydeck. Only downside I would have preferred a keyhole cockpit instead of an oval one.

It is light and deserves some attention when landing with surf.
