Bought this kayak 5 years ago and have not been disappointed since. Got it to use while my sit on top was being repaired. I was very suprised for the pricepoint how great this kayak is. Tracks well and my favorite feature is the seat is actually a beach chair! I use it all the time when we go ashore to picnic. I've had friends of all sizes tell my they were all comfortable in it. A couple have even purchased their own after using mine. I feel this is a great kayak for first timers or well seasoned paddlers.
