I really wanted to like it. It is so darned cute, little and convenient. First of all, I am NOT going to criticize it's performance. If you inflate it properly, it has a stiff bow and cuts thru the water admirably. I've read many reviews saying it was slow. Yes, if you compare it to a Eddyline hardshell, I guess it is. But as stated previously, if you inflate it right, it really goes at a pretty good clip for a little inflateable. Now here's the criticism. It's really UNCOMFORTABLE. It's supposedly designed for a smaller adult. I'm 5 ft. and 125 lbs. A little chubby but far from clinically obese. I could barely fit in the cockpit. I did use a inflateable seat, but it wasn't that big. You could stretch your legs out, but you couldn't bend then in any way as the coaming was in the way. Also the weird little pad that the company provides for a seat is just that, a little pad, There was no support for your back which is why I used a inflateable seat.
At $250 it's a great deal if you are a very small skinny person, I think it would be best for a kid. It is a very safe stable craft, It would take a lot to tip it. It's also very durable construction, I would assume it will have a long life. So all in all, a bad buy for a larger person, but would be great one for a smaller person or a child. Had it been comfortable like my Advanced Elements Ultralite, I would have given it 5 stars.
