I bought this kayak thinking I was going to do some gentle touring around some islands in Thailand. How wrong was I. First day I got every thing set up and took it out only to capsize within 10 meters. I spent the rest of the day trying to get the hang of this kayak to no avail. I have 10 years experience in kayaks on rivers, sea and lakes. This kayak is now for sale after 1 day of use. Don't bother.
I’ve been kayaking since I was 11. Im 30. I’ve sat in flat bottomed and “tippy” kayaks alike. In sea, rivers, estuaries, white water, etc. I kayak 30 miles normally for 8 hours. I was looking forward to doing so in this! It’s heavy - I doubt you’d be able to use this as a rucksack but it stores away nicely. Took this out this week on holiday and it’s nothing short of bloody dangerous! It tracks beautifully but pointless when it capsizes every 5 mins! There is daylight between the bottom of the sides underneath the coaming even at 5psi on the bottom. Fine for a racing kayak, absolutely pointless for a tourer where you want to rest and coast along. You absolutely cannot stop paddling. I’ll be returning this ASAP.
Had to take it back after a month, wearing really badly on the folds for putting it away and nowhere near as robust as it was made out to be. Skirt was practically impossible to fit on. Very disappointing considering the cost.
