I love this kayak. It is very balanced, easily carried overhead (and Iím only 5'2") and has lots of gear storage. The ride is usually dry, unlike other sot kayaks (unless you're in the surf). it turns easily and glides easily. it can be tippy if you carve too fast. Itís getting an 8 from me because the hull slap is incredibly annoying. If the water isn't like glass, you're going to get that slap noise. Itís ok as long as you're not going for that sneak shot of a bird, etc. if you paddle with someone else (which you should!!), it will make them crazy. Otherwise, very comfy seating and lots of room.
