I am new to the sport of kayaking! I have many friends that have been kayaking for years and they are into it big time! I have used many of there kayaks and all are top of the line. I finally got to use a Wilderness Pungo Classic yak. Wow! night and day difference! Made my paddling so much easier and alot more comfortable. Only one I will use now! Easier on my back and easier to load by myself! I am one happy Wilderness customer. Try one today! You will love it!

This kayak is awesome. It has the most stable cockpit that you could even stand up in it if you wish. the front is like a dagger to slice thru the waves while giving you a good ride. The adjustable foot braces work extremely well even for very tall people. The seat is also very comfortable. It is a joy to paddle because it glides and tracks very nice. You would have no trouble keeping up with a group of kayakers with minimum effort. It has a nice waterproof pouch under the rear hatch cover to store valuables.It is extra roomy and stable and I love it. I would give it a 10 for sure

The original Pungo was the first recreational style boat that introduced kayaking to the average person. I own several - they are EXTREMELY stable, can be paddled by anyone from a child to the heavier than average person. Easy to get into with the long, wide kayak. Very efficient, easy to paddle and comfortable - you'll do circles around canoers with no training required. Used ones are hundreds less then the new styles. Was later marketed by Victory model called Navigator.

I recently purchase my first kayak. My wife has a couple of Dagger Blackwaters 10.5' and 11.5' and they just didn't fit well (at least for my 6'1" @ 350# frame). Tried on a Pungo and it fit in the showroom. Took out the first night I bought it on a chain of local lakes here in the Twin Cities. It felt good like the old confrontable sneaker. Handled outstanding without any tracking issues. I would recommend this boat for anyone that is a beginner and of the largers sizes.
