Great first kayak. Controlling direction in wind is a challenge but manageable, my background is canoeing, this is more fun and safer. My wife has fibromyalgia and finds some exercising difficult. She can handle 2 hour trips with ease and loves the ease of entry and excellent stability. We're in our 50's and will use if with our grandchildren. If you want a performance boat get that, all tandems have limitations. The Aegean strikes a good balance of size and performance, if a Malibu XL had been available I may have gone for that - it's 10 lbs. lighter, but shorter with a bit less load capacity. Ocean build quality is quite good. We tie ours onto a Combi-Camp light weight camper and go. It's a blast.
