I purchased an OK Mysto to use in the surf. I was not at all happy with it. This kayak tends to perl very easily on any kind of moderate to large wave. I quickly got rid of it. I now use a Cobra Strike, but even the old OK Frenzy was better than the Mysto. At least, that was my experience.
The kayak is well designed and comes with a good level of handles but has only limited storage. It rides well in a swell or chop and gives the paddler confidence. The seat height is good and it is comfortable to use. The quality of the moulding was very good.
The Mysto grips the water very well due to a sophisticated underwater profile and presence of a good keel. The excellent underwater profile also makes it very stable and difficult to capsize. The bow handle is a moulded hole and this makes it easy to moor safely or to secure with a padlock and cable.
So, in summary, a good piece of kit at a good price. It is superior to our Venus 11 in terms of quality and performance.
Overall performance was good, my main problem was the moulding quality on the hull. The bottom was very distorted and appeared to be dented on one side more than the other. When checked against others it appeared they all had that fault to greater or lesser extents. I had a replacement which was better but far from perfect. Check the hull is my advice.
