If you're looking for a solid reliable touring kayak this is a good choice. This kayak is great for beginners and intermediate paddlers. This kayak however, does not lend itself to fast flowing small windy rivers and is very hard to control on the turns.
Overall, a great touring kayak that will give many seasons of reliable pleasure.
All in all this kayak is an all round fun day or short weekend tripper and will not disappoint.
The kayak is very stable and perfect for beginners to intermediate. This kayak edges surprisingly well allowing the beginner to greatly improve there skills while feeling safe. The kayak gets a 9 rating because the seat is not that great. However a little foam in the right places resolves this problem.
Overall value for money this is a great choice.
