About the reviewer Been kayaking for about 3 years. Do lots of surf and a bit of whitewater. Can stern squirt and bow stall for a bit, then I fall flat on my face - lol. Test environment Had it for a few months, so lots of places: whitewater, surf, pools, flatwater. Review A great boat which is very agile on a wave and you can get a fair bit from it. Great for flatspins and blunts and I'm sure there's plenty of people who can pull off some crazy tricks in this boat. It's easy to squirt and get vertical and even though I can't my friend can cartwheel this from end to end to end and so on. It's also so comfy and the outfitting is great. The only thing is the ratchets are mild steel so you need to keep an eye on them as they rust quite easly in lots of surf and salt water. I bought this boat ex-demo and got an awsome deal on it as with the Project now they're quite cheap but unless you want to pull off huge pistol flips and donkey...

ok but not the best
About the reviewer i ve been kayaking for about 2 years and im not that experianced i can roll and scull all the basics but not that mutch Test environment small surf and estuary Review In the surf i was quite pleased with the boat, it court the waves exelantly and was quite good for learning to surf but the only thing i did find was the carving was poor and that it wasn't very manororable atorl. as soon as the wave started to turn you it was quite hard to get the boat back on track. As for the estuary the boat was oright but as it was quite a windy day and there was a cross wind hitting us the boat was constanttly turning. even when i was paddiling on 1 side and putting a stern rudder in it was still turning a bit and it was quite frustrating as i was in a race and sea kayakers where flying by me. so for long distance paddiling ok but you wouldn't want to go far as i was pretty fed up after 4 miles of it.comfort wise the seat and backrest are quite good. there not expensive...
