Rented this kayak in Panama City Beach Florida. First time ever in a kayak, I went out into the surf on a Red Flag. It was awesome! I just kept the bow pointed into the waves and before I knew it I was BTB! The next day the water was calm so I was able to put my two kids on the boat with me and we paddled around the surf. I also took this boat into the West Bay and it was very easy for me to maneuver around Shell Island. I didn't even use a seat when I rented this kayak. If I buy one of these, I will definitely get a seat, although I was able to have a lot of fun on my vacation without one.
I would recommend this type of kayak to anyone. The rod holders were great for fishing and the rental guy said I could pick one up for less than $500 at West Marine.
