My boat is the kevlar version, very light and easy to handle. As a relatively new paddler, I have found the boat to be fairly tippy, and (for me), difficult to control in a strong crosswind. On a calm day, it is a pleasure, and very fast. I don't think it's the ideal boat for a beginner, and I think a skeg would immensely improve it's performance in a crosswind. The fit and finish are excellent, with the exception of the large hatch gasket, which has never fit properly. In mango and white, it's appearance get lots of comments.
