This kayak replaces my...

This kayak replaces my older, heavier one which I happily paddled for 17 years. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars now is because I'm still breaking it in. It's not as stable as my older one but that is to be expected. My old stiff joints like the larger cockpit but that advantage is lost if I put the console in place first. Gotta practice getting in then attaching the console. I really appreciate the weight. It's ridiculously easy to put on top of my van and even easier to carry to the water. All in all, this kayak and I will become good friends.

This is my first...

This is my first lightweight kayak. It tracks well in the Hudson River and takes swells and wakes well. Its tippier than a heavy poly kayak, so its best to have some experience. I am only 5'3" and can lift it. The seat removes so it makes it 5 lbs lighter. The seat is comfy but i also use a lumbar inflatable pillow to make it super comfy for long paddles. Cockpit is generous and the sport console is nice. I have the mango color and its so pretty.

Boat is well made with one...

Boat is well made with one of the better finishes if you like a clean shiny boat.  Easy to use and fairly lightweight if you need to lift it on to overhead roof rack. Tracks very well for that size boat. Using it on rivers and lakes, you will be happy in the size, comfort and handling.

I often paddle a Santee...

I often paddle a Santee 120 Sport when visiting friends in Virginia; they have two, so I don't always feel I need to bring my own boat. It is relatively light, very stable, easy to move through the water and control, and has an even more generous cockpit than what I need - which is large! One of the things I particularly appreciate is the ease with which one can adjust the foot pegs. It's not my boat - unless I was the last one to paddle, they are always in the wrong place! It handles chop well, and rides the swells with ease on the lower Potomac River. The only thing I can say that is negative is that the lines are not as pretty as my well loved Eddyline Sandpiper.
