Deets: 14ft long, 23.5 inches wide, 45lbs. 250lb capacity, 38 x 18 inch cockpit, made of Trylon.

About me: Male, 125lbs, 5'6", 10+ years instructing and sales experience

Pros:
The Tampico 140S has a low profile deck (minimal windage) and prominent keel line which provide for excellent tracking performance. The outfitting of the Tampico 140S is exceptional, especially in the cockpit where sea kayak-like features (back-band and integrated thigh braces) make you feel like you’re wearing the Tampico 140S and allow you to take advantage of its great secondary stability for lean-turns and bracing.

Cons:
The low profile deck requires the paddler to sit with their knees in a very flat position which may be uncomfortable if your are inflexible. If this is a problem for you too then you should consider trying the Tampico 140L which has a slightly higher deck and a different cockpit configuration that provides more room for your legs

Summary: The Tampico 140S is an excellent, light touring kayak for the small/mid-sized, beginner/intermediate paddler looking for something to take out on near-coastal day trips.
