For the most part, I...

For the most part, I learned to paddle whitewater in my Matrix nearly twenty years ago. It is a great boat for that purpose and well beyond. I found it to be a great surfing boat and easy to roll. In fact, it is the boat in which I first really got the hang of rolling. It has served me well through lots of eastern Class IV water, and I have also used it to surf big waves on the Great Lakes. Very forgiving in the rough stuff. It is still my go-to kayak for anything other than flat water.
I would recommend it to anyone.

Perception's Proline...

Perception's Proline Corsica Matrix was my first boat, and like many of these reviews have stated, it was the perfect boat to get into whitewater kayaking. I now own play boats, creek boats, and sit-on-tops, but I still LOVE my Matrix! Easy to roll and very forgiving when learning how to run rapids. Very versatile kayak!

The corsica matrix that I...

The corsica matrix that I own was my first boat, and a not so gently used one at that (got it as a hand-me-down from my dad), and it still handles great. I even have little difficulty using the boat in flat water. Very awesome boat, got me hooked on paddling.

I am an absolute beginner...

I am an absolute beginner and have found this boat perfect. Stable, quick, and easy to handle. Great boat, fantastic for a beginner or somebody looking for an easy river rider.

I bought my Matrix usd and...

I bought my Matrix usd and it is an awesome boat. It was my first whitwater and treated me kindly. Easy to roll, easy to paddle, easy to love. I am 6'5" 230 lbs and the boat accomadates me comfortably. I recommend it to anyone wanting a great kayak, not only a beginner kayak, but one that will be with you for awhile.

Corsica is a great boat...

Corsica is a great boat for beginners - very stable and easy to roll. Very roomy for large paddlers with lots of space for gear. Corsica was my first boat and has served me well on Class V drops on Chattooga to big, fast (& cold) water in Colorado to surfing at the Carolina coast.

My Corsica Matrix was my first Kayak. It has been a fantastic boat for a beginner. It is stable, roomy and its length allows me to slice through the grabbiest hydraulics with ease.
