I've been surfing on sit on tops for 4 years and bought the Islander Hula for use in surf.
What is good: The quality of the finish is high. The kayak is pretty well bullet proof and the plastic is soft and comfortable on the bum and feet.
What is not so good: The design is dated. It is heavy for its size (20 kilos). It tracks badly on flat water and the bulbous nose ploughs into the surf when descending a wave making it difficult to turn.
Summary: There are more modern, lighter designs out there and the model is well past its sell by date.
