I decided to do the Watertribe Ultra marathon (UM), a 68 mile adventure race, on a surfski as a personal challenge. This was my third UM and I planned on using my Stealth Cobra for the trip. When I got the Huki S1X I was thrilled to be able use it instead.
I had only 2 weeks to get used to it and I only got to paddle it 3 times in that time. The boat performed flawlessly. Even after blowing 95% of my energy in the first 1/4 of the race I had no problem staying upright despite negotiating the huge boat wakes of the Florida intercostal water way.
Awsome boat I love the options available. Mine has adj foot wells, hatch specialty inlay in the deck etc. Truly a unique boat. and only 33lbs in vacd carbon/fiberglass
