I bought this kayak because I wanted to try a SOT and since it claims to handle mild Whitewater, I could use it there some. Overall the boat is fun and easy to paddle. It doesn't track as well as some boats, but then again if it did, it wouldn't be good on WW. It's really heavy, but so are most SOT's. I took it down some class II+ rapids and it did fine for what it is. It is very easy to climb back in after going for a swim (whether on purpose or not). With the skeg down, the tracking is much better.
The negatives I have are: When deployed the skeg makes a lot of noise. The handles at mid-boat are nice for carrying solo, but the two piece plastic can unsnap and pinch your hand. Also, when seated, my thighs push against them when braced and it becomes painful after a few minutes. I will attempt to add padding to them at some point.
