This kayak is a sit-on-top polyethylene white water kayak. If you are new to white water and don't want a closed deck kayak this is the kayak for you. It is much faster than an inflatable kayak, but slower than a closed deck kayak. At 30" wide it is very stable. However don't under estimate the river. If you turn it sidewards after a drop you can still dig in a rail and go over. Ocean Kayak uses what they call a knee tree to keep you in the kayak. I think that thigh straps would have been a better idea. The idea of the knee tree between your legs when you are thrown from the kayak is kinda scary. However, to date no one has ever been injured in any of our yahoos. If you run our river in one of our inflatable kayaks, you will hit a couple of hundred rocks by the time you hit the pick up area. The same river in a Yahoo, you hit half a dozen rocks. The big difference is the inflatable kayaks hit a rock and just keep going. When the Yahoos hit a rock, you go flying but that is all part of the fun.
