Here's the short story, I bought a Elaho for my wife, she loved it, I keep demo'ing countless kayaks, and bought another Elaho. The handling is no less than fun, stable until to the point you're putting water in the cockpit, handles the rough water very well, and has decent speed, and with the flush decks,it makes for easy re-entry, even for a beginner and makes for a nice sleek look. This is not an expedition boat, but a great all around kayak with plenty of room for a weekend adventure. Our boats are fiberglass with rudders, but the rudders are seldom dropped , it tracks well without them.
