If you are after an all round Kayak for ocean, lake or river use the Swing is for you. The great thing about the swing is that if you fall off you just jump back on, in deep water or a flowing river, there is no fear of being trapped inside, this also means it is ultra easy if you are touring to stop whenever you like to take pictures, explore etc etc. I have taken the swing down grade 2 rivers with no problem. She's stable and reasonably maneouvrable.
Paddling in lake water is a breeze with a smooth, fast, straight, track. There is tons of room for storage and a really convenient hatch right between your legs. At 26 kgs the swing isn't too heavy for short portages. Do buy the back rest and if you are planning touring trips the rear storage pod. Happy paddling!
