The Lotus is a 8 foot sit on top style of kayak. Relatively light weight. I bought 3 for the family, as an introductory to kayaking. On the water they are stable and easy to handle, but not very fast. They seem very durable and should last a long time. The seat rides a little low and may be uncomfortable on long rides but as a recreational kayak the seats are fine.
The Lotus has areas for attaching a rod holder or even a sail. With plenty of storage behind the seat. For the price and size, I believe the Lotus to be a good introductory model.
