Value / Money
Probably a better boat for someone who has some experience under their belt.
Pros / The Good
This is a nice little playboat that's easy to throw in the trunk or in the truck. I can't do much with it yet given my skills. It transitions pretty quick and you better be ready to drive if you get in some surf. It does not handle small features that well IMO, but I think someone could make it cartwheel easily in medium-sized holes. Overall, it handles well and is a fun ride. I've tackled some decent rapids in it and it does fine.
Cons / The Bad
This is all based on perspective: You can't be lazy in this boat. The chines make ferries happen fast and inexperienced paddlers will have trouble holding lines. The nose will find the current with any upstream movement, so getting into small holes is difficult. It has rolled me unexpectingly a few times. Not the easiest to roll back, but not hard either.
