Excellent kayak. Equally at home playing close to shore, rock hopping and on long open crossings. Tracks superbly, loads of storage space and cockpit fittings easily adjusted. Only black mark is that the leg lifters under seat are extremely flimsy, set them as required then glue in a foam block to prevent constant fiddling every time you get out of boat. All in all a superb kayak
What a nice kayak! It has beautiful lines, but most important it tracks great, and is easy to edge, very maneuverable. There is lots of room in the dry hatches and they are easy to access. I Love this boat and would recommend to anyone who wants a fun boat that gives you lots of versatility in what you would want to do- from a short trip to over night trips. ENJOY
