What a spectacular ride!!!! I purchased my Nomad on a whim, and am absolutely delighted with it. I've spent most of my time in an Ocean Kayak Venus, which I thought was great until I stuck my butt in the Nomad. To me, the Nomad has all the best features of the sit-on tops I've tried.(Scrambler, Frenzy, Venus, Yak Board) I'm small (5ft 115lbs) and I am going over and through surf that would have had me catapulted in the Venus. I thought I wasn't going to like the molded handle, but it makes life easier in the surf. The performance is amazing, fast great for cruising with the dolphins and fun for riding waves.....It is 6lbs heavier than the Venus and 2 inches wider which makes it a bit more difficult for me to get on my car, but the performance outweighs the inconvenience.
