Playful best describes the RMX. It loves waves, surfing, and doing eddy turns in tide currents. It will go straight without the skeg, but you have to use good technique and pay attention. With an inch or two of skeg showing it tracks without fuss, though there is a small but noticable performance penalty. Although a relatively low volume boat it holds tons of gear. A weeks worth of gear and food were no problem on a Georgian Bay trip, though we didn't have to bring water. A week on salt water might be a squeeze. A steady, stable boat to begin with, it is like a rock when loaded with gear. This is my third sea Kayak and far-and-away my favorite.
