I enjoy this crossover kayak very much. I like this boat because of its fit and maneuverability. First, the fit is comfortable. I can sit securely in the seat with back brace, thigh brace, foot pedals, and seat cushion. The excellent fit lets me control all aspects of the kayaks movement. This is important in river kayaking. Second, I like the kayaks ability to maneuver in the water. With a few strokes, this kayak will rotate easily and completely around. This is important for river kayaking when steering quickly.
