SandPiper 130 , Awesome Kayak , Awesome Company
The Eddyline 130 is a great kayak. It’s about as perfect as you can get to if you’re looking for a kayak for Leisurely paddling time on the water but still want a kayak that will and can accelerate when you want or need to . That cloud 10 seat might be as comfortable as a lazy boy recliner and you will be tempted to plop your feet up out of the cockpit and up on the deck and take a nap . It has Ginormous amounts of cargo carrying capacity and there’s even room behind the seat . The stability is fantastic, both primary and secondary. It would take an extreme effort to flip this kayak and some smaller or weaker people may not be able to even do it. When you want to lean into a turn you can feel the secondary kick in and just hold you up even in very tight turns . It handles all kinds of chop perfectly. It rides over small / medium size waves like a fishing bobble coming from all directions, no need to steer into them anymore like in a lot of other kayaks. This kayak is very light for its size and you know the second you run your hands over it this is quality. It's a super strong , super comfortable & super safe kayak. Then there’s the people at Eddyline. They go above and beyond. One in particular ( Tom ) rewrites the meaning of customer service. He managed to arrange delivery of my custom order 130 even during a dam pandemic With all REI’S temporarily closed . Ya , he’s a badass. This is a great made in the USA product by people who know what they’re doing. I would recommend this or any Eddyline kayak to anyone interested in hitting the water with comfort , safety and your piece of mind as their priorities.
