I gave this boat a nine out of ten because I had to remove the footrests, but after that the cockpit is adequate for someone of my height/weight. With the skeg deployed, it tracks like it's on rails. Very sturdy plastic, and maintains its shape even on the hottest days. At 46 pounds, not too heavy to carry solo. Get compliments on it everywhere I go. Too bad Venture has dropped this kayak from its lineup. A great paddling boat for beginners to advanced.
This boat is quick, stable and easy to maneuver. There is a enough storage for kayak camping trips. I had never heard of this brand before but a kayaking buddy set me up with it and it hasn't let me down. I highly recommend the kayak for beginner and intermediate paddlers!
