A bit of front deck rigging, a rod holder and two watertight hatches were just what it took to complete this racy kayak’s list of offerings. Among other items are speed and amazing secondary stability and tracking, thanks to a streamlined, grooved hull that brings this fairly short kayak to life so that it can stand its ground with much longer units.
We have an Enduro 13 and Enduro 14. The 13 works very well, easily paddled, fast and reasonably maneuverable. My wife and daughter have paddled it in waves up to 6 feet and it has handled them very well. It is a little less tippy than the 14 foot Enduro which makes sense since it is also marginally wider. The only thing that has been a slight problem has been that the Skeg mechanism doesn't like sand and I have had to remove small (1/2") pebbles from beside the skeg which has prevented it from operating properly occasionally. Realistically this isn't a huge problem except that putting the kayak in from shore does tend to put it in an environment where it can pick up rocks and sand, so preventative maintenance is a must. We have had the same issue with sand in the Enduro 14s rudder mechanism, again, maintence is the cure. So really we are very happy overall with the performance of the Enduro 13 and would recommend it to anyone who wants a fast moving stable kayak for basically anything you can throw at it. Obviously it isn't a white water kayak nor is it a multi day large body of water sea kayak, but if you want to take it on smaller inland lakes and rivers for adventures that span a few days and may see variable conditions this is a kayak you should try.
