I've used a Moku a couple of times, and I like it. I'll give the pros and cons of this boat now. It's a good, solid boat that'll do many things. It's stable, fast, tracks well, and it's suitable for bigger paddlers. It'll carry enough for day trips and overnighers on the weekends. It's a good 'day-play' kind of boat. You could use it for fishing and light diving too. The boat is fairly priced, even if you buy it new.
The cons are that this is not a surf boat. You could get out and put into a beach IF the surf were very small. If you're looking to catch waves though, look at the Festiva. It's somewhat more tippy than the Reggae; you cannot stand up and answer a call of nature in this boat!
Overall, the Moku is a great boat. It'll do almost anything most paddlers would want to do. Are there faster boats? Are there better surfing boats? Are there boats that carry more? Yes, but you'll pay a premium for them. If you're looking for a good value, the Moku is it.
