I'm 13 yrs old & have been paddling for about 8 yrs. I've paddled this boat on local Rivers & streams, Shanandoa, Robinson,Rappahannock. I've also paddled solo on a 120 mile,10 day, trip on the Rio Grande(Boquillas canyon & down through the "Lower Canyons")some days we had strong head winds & alot of technical maneavering. But handled well under the curcumstances. Light gear in the front helped it track better. For my size (115 lbs), I think this a very good boat. My Father added a bow seat & I think it makes a pretty good tandem boat too.
