I've got several kayaks. I had been wanting a sit on top model so picked this one up at the start of summer. With it's awesome storage this kayak is really pretty great. I've used it on lakes as well as creeks and I'm really happy with it. It's pretty stable and absolutely beginner friendly.
I own other kayaks and have some experience. This kayak is terrible. It has no stability and absolutely no tracking which makes it tip over with any movement and spins at the slightest change of current. It is completely unusable. I would like to return it but may be just out my money. Very disappointing.
