Basically a racing kayak, it is quite fast and has an excellent rudder system(you steer with your toes,while your heels are locked so you can brace,if you use thigh straps). Initial stability is low (feels quite tippy), but secondary stability is very good, once you get over the tippy feel you can lean a bit. It is stable enough to take out on blustery days,with smaller waves, ride is fairly dry for a SOT. Overall a fun,quick boat for touring and work-outs. Built in New Zealand availability is limited in US from all accounts, but if you can find one, TRY it out.
