I bought 2 of these nomads, and feel that this is the best boat for a first time paddler. I also have a few other kayaks, but when someone wants to try kayaking, I put them in a nomad and know that they will love kayaking and have a real good experience with this boat. Good in the surf, good in big waves and rivers too. Good and stable, easy to transport and use. For sure get the 30 dollar skeg, it will track straighter. The nomad has a hot, modern design, it sort of makes you feel like a nomad on the water, you'll have a hard time staying off the water!
