The Ovation to me at first seemed like a slow boat compared to the rival I had been paddling for years. I like the turning speed of the ovation, fast. Also it is a very dry boat and is outstanding in a surf. It takes some getting used to, but to turn it on a surfing wave the boat needs to be heeled over onto its "Ghost Chine" where then it will give you a whiplash it turns so fast. I have made some hard upstream obtainments in this boat, a bit harder than the Rival but is definitely doable with perfect paddling technique.
