I am 5 ft 11in, 230 lbs. This boat is super stable, getting in or out. The footpegs extend, easily, to fit my 6 ft height, no more cramped, bent knees. The seat is comfortable, but a bit tricky to adjust while paddling. Best to set adjustments before paddling. Pretty much cuts thru big 3 ft waves, and only have
to back off occasionally from the tallest whitecaps on the lake. Due to my large size, a few waves do slop in from the side.
It paddles fast, tracks straight. Little goosey when the waves hit from the side at an angle, takes a bit of paddle placement to track straight.
All in all, an excellent little boat, and at $799 a good value
