I'm a tall girl and I scraped my knees while trying to get my legs in this kayak. But I'm pretty sure that's just me not knowing how to get in proper. I really do like this thing though, it's really stable and had a ton of space for putting my fishing stuff all over the place. I can even take my three year old with me in it. It's affordable and fun and you should buy one. I take mine out pretty often, lots of fun.
