First time Kayak buyer purchased Santa Cruze second hand and thus far I am very please. @6'4'' tall, room was a concern, and I have found the S.C. very comfy. Paddles and Handles great, very confidence inspiring. So far only rivers and lakes, but looking forward to getting it out in the Salt. Has a tendancy to wander a bit presumably due to rocker in bottom, but this is offset by tremendous manueverability. Build quality seems superior. All said a great boat for a beginner or for general recreational use. Fly fishing from this boat is no problem. If it works out in the Ocean, it'll be a 10 for me!
