There's not much to dislike about the Scupper Pro and Scupper Pro TW! These boats are so sturdy and rugged that I would guess they are as or more indestructible than just about any other kayak out there. The Scupper Pros have a huge cargo capacity, allowing a diver to easily take three aluminum 80's out through the roughest of surf with unsurpassed security. The Scupper Pro provides a relatively dry ride and fair stability that will only take the inexperienced diver or fisherman a few days to become accustomed to.The Scupper Pro punches out through big surf with the greatest of ease and has enough speed to come in on the back of a large wave in order to avoid purling in the surf. The experienced kayaker will have no problem coming in sideways on a strong low brace in front of the wave, but the novice will most often get dumped if they try to surf the Scupper Pro in on anything over a few feet in height. For these paddlers, I recommend coming in on the back of a wave or swimming the kayak in while holding on to the seaward toggle-handle.There are two things to keep in mind: 1. you will have to wait for your buddies on their XTs and Drifters to catch up to you, and 2. it can be difficult to keep on track in a strong crosswind without a rudder. For the latter it helps to load extra weight forward to bury the bow a bit. The extra weight forward will also help in punching out through big surf.
