As far as tracking goes I have found that with the skeg in place it tracks straight as an arrow. With the skeg out it is somewhat temperamental, but isn’t anything an experienced kayaker can’t handle and certainly nothing that can’t be cleared up with a little attention to you technique (or an hours worth of instruction). I don’t much care for the affixed skeg, but luckily you can replace it with a pull up skeg which is nice for shallow areas.
The price is unbeatable for what you get. I picked up two Storms for $250 a piece and that price included the spray skirt, paddle, and cushioned seat back, in other words everything you need to get started. The paddle is a bit short (about 215cm) for a boat of this width (Beam is 32 inches). I switched to a 230cm and performance has greatly improved. The boat is very durable and can take some abuse. All in all it is a great and affordable starter boat.
