Great cockpit: comfortable seat and versatile seat-back (use as back band or backrest), twist-lock footpegs with wide footrests, and great thigh braces. Seals spray skirt size 1.7 is a perfect fit with the seat back in the back band position. Only have taken it out on flat water so far, and I can't wait to get it out on some big water and waves.
The 28 ounce Nokomis is an incredible value. The quality far exceeds anything else in its class/price range. I looked at it's competitors that were up to 50% more in price, and the Nokomis beats them on all counts, including the clean design, how the carbon shaft joins the carbon blade without any funky tape around the joint.
Paddle performance: no flex, flutter, just smooth propulsion. I couldn't be more pleased. Finally, the customer service of Cannon is unbeatable.
