We are recreational kayakers, we have several large lakes nearby and some excellent calm to mild rivers. We needed another kayak for a growing family but didn't want to spend a mint.
Nice little kayak, easy to carry and it works great, very useable and surprisingly full of features, i.e., padded seat, drain plug, bungies, handles (front & rear), dry storage, spray skirt, and nicely decorated. The "dry" storage is wet, the paddle it came with was very lame (too short and leaks all over even with those little rubber washers), and after you stop paddling it always turns to the right. Put your stuff in a ziplock, buy a new paddle two days after purchase, and don't worry about the tracking... you'll get used to it. Otherwise, it works very nicely.
Don't let the cons deter you, it is one of the best deals going and you are sure to have a great time with it. Happy yaking!
