I had a WS Ride for fishing and decided I needed a smaller boat for fishing and riding the surf. I bought an Islander without test paddling it (bad mistake). The boat is flat bottomed, doesn't track, tippy, and hard to maneuver. I've had it in the surf, but it is SO tippy and hard to manuever that it is truly more work than fun. I haven't sold the boat becuase I have found that there is no one kayak for everything. I still like to play in the surf, so I'll keep it and just try and get better with it. I have bought a Necky Dolphin for fishing now. I haven't had it out yet, but I'm looking forward to testing it out.
