Switched from canoeing to kayaks. The Tuktu is a great all-round recreational kayak. While no kayak can excel in every aspect of performance without compromise, the Tuktu really shines. It is stable in calm, moving and windy conditions, can bank over in turns, and glides great for its size.

Interior rates: Seat is extremely comfortable. Back rest is adjustable both for lean and height, and the bracket is metal(should not crack like some plastic models). Seat base is adjustable for angle, and leg support. Rear storage area has a neoprene cover to insure water tight storage. Cockpit size allows ease of entry and exit. On top of all of the features, the kayak is light enough to make loading and carrying easy.

Overall, great design, performance, comfort and quality.

We have had this Tuktu for 3 years now. It is the first of our three kayaks to go out - everytime! Extremely stable for it's size, glide is wonderful and tracking is great. We actually tried 20 different kayaks before we purchased it (went to kayak paddles, demos, rentals at 5 different stores). The Tuktu may be hard to find-but is worth every penny and effort to locate.
