This is a VERY basic kayak. This is the first kayak I purchased, it was on sale at our local sporting goods store and I figured it would be a good one to get my "feet wet" with and it worked great for this purpose. I enjoyed figuring out the fundamentals of paddling in this small maneuverable kayak. It only has an adjustable back support and one small deck bungee. Like I said, very basic. After paddling just a few hundred yards my shoulders were killing me and I decided to spend just a bit more money to get things like foot pegs and a storage box or two. For what I paid for it, I think it would best as a starter or kids kayak. My wife has decided to start paddling with me occasionally and she is going to use this one.
