This yak is so great!!!! It fits like a glove moves swiftly in the water, is very comfortable and there are just too many things to say about it. I love it and would recommend it to ANYONE! I have been researching and demoing boats for about 1-1.5 years. I wanted to make sure I got the boat that suited me the most, and as soon as I slipped into this boat it was like magic. I am bout 5'8 250lbs. I was worried about my weight being a problem, but it was wonderful. Not even an issue. I have been paddling it so much this season I can’t keep my paddle out of the water. It pays to do your homework!
