  size 13 feet
  Posted by: Northyak on Jan-08-13 11:56 AM (EST)
 

I owned a Vista and am 6' with size 13 feet. It was tight, and I solved the fit by wearing size 11 sandals when I paddled. Your longer leg length will compound the problem. Also bear in mind that these kayaks have not been manufactured for quite a few years (7?) so that the boat is getting old. Contrary to one earlier post, this was my first kayak, and it did not feel tippy at all. I quite liked the boat, but after only 4 paddle trips with it I was hooked on paddling and sold it and moved up to a 17 foot touring kayak.
