I've taken my Safari out twice. The first time I under inflated it, and definitely got wet sitting in the boat, but as it was 98 degrees out, it felt good. The first time I didn't use the skeg, and it definitely likes to spin, although I could make it go straight with a little effort. The river was low and we had to make a few portages over some muddy gravel bars, and the material was more than up to the task. No issues with punctures, very durable material. The next time I used the skeg and inflated the chambers more. I didn't get wet sitting in my boat until I reached and leaned down on the boat to get something behind my seat. Expect to get wet in this boat.
The boat tracked very well with the skeg, and I had no trouble keeping up with the canoes in my group. The boat inflates in about 15 minutes with a foot pump, and deflates even faster. It's easy to carry with the bag provided. I'm very happy with my purchase and look forward to taking it with me next time I travel by air.
I think the inflatable seat and footrest could be improved upon. Perhaps a plastic foot rest that could fit into some slots on the side chambers would be a better design. There's always an opportunity for improvement, but I think it's a very well made boat, and I look forward to several years of adventure with this kayak.
