Overall I've been very happy with the boat. I've had it for about a month now and put at least 4 miles a week on it. Hurricane's niche is lightweight, and they certainly deliver.

I'm 6'2", 200lb and can easily maintain a 4mph pace all day in light conditions. To go much faster though, I really have to put a lot of effort in, with minimal results in return. The boat tracks well, is easy to steer and is very stable. I can stand up without any difficulty.

In rough conditions (2ft waves and winds of 8-12) the boat still handles well, but requires some maintenance to keep on track. White caps are the limit for this hull. In 4ft+, with waves every 4-8 seconds the boat has almost no stability as there isn't enough hull in the water to maintain balance.

If you're looking for a well made, lightweight recreational kayak that is easy to use and just plain enjoyable, you'll love the Skimmer 128.
