Just bought The Ride, yellow, used. I tried it out in our canals here on siesta key, florida, and it handled and tracked very well. It has a rudder of course and I used and epic carbon paddle, which made a big difference. the boat handles well and maneuverability is really great on this kayak and it is extremely stable, more so than my tarpon. I am very pleased with it and would buy it again. We now have four kayaks, and my husband built a rack for them. the ride is made from a hard plastic and so far no dents or dings in it. We are pleased with kayaking so far and the ride is a great purchase as it has 13'6" of room, it has a reasonable amount of space, but have not gone on more than a half day trip so far. Would purchase it again.
