This boat is fast on flat water, surfs well, and is quite stable. This is a very fast sea kayak.
For moving fast on sheltered water, this is a definite short list boat. When a clubmate heard the times I've turned in with this boat - well.. He wants to change the club rules to essentially put it into the racing class with ICF and Westside boats.
Hatches are well secured, and have not leaked noticeably in 2-3 ft seas.
I'm 230lb, 6'3", and find the cockpit to be a bit snug, but comfortable enough. The boat is stable enough to adjust the foot pedals in chop sitting on 1" thick padding added to the seat.
