I remember my first time in one after paddling one year, I just couldn't imagine being in one in any turbulence. My skills are good now and I find it easy and enjoyable to paddle it. But a new paddler will be quite comfortable in any NDK boat. That's the difference. Matter of fact, there's a tour group that takes people out who never held a paddle in their life in Romanys.
However, I can fall asleep in an Explorer in some rough water but you better not fall asleep in a Nord.
