This is a great boat ! I'm a beg/intermediate yakker.. I got it for $80 and had to fix a couple things.. It seems it has been pinned or something.. I've paddled it in III+ water on the MiddleBox of the Gila River, NM.. I really like the stability, but it's a bit harder to roll.. Made of thinner material than other boats.. It will turn on a dime ! Surfs the smallest waves(ima goober) ! Still learning to surf n Boof.. I really like my boat.. I live where there is no water( except the dirty Rio Grande .. No whitewater here in HellPaso Texas.. Lolol ! I hope to win an SUP .. Paddle on !
