Any opinions on this yak? Good for class 1 and 2 whitewater? Thanks

Much better than the Ascend. I'm sure it will do fine in 1 and 2. Add some thigh straps to help maneuvering.

The hull is pretty deep. It's meant for ocean use and has a deeper draft than some river boats. Nevertheless, you'll be fine in Class 1 and 2 with it. I've taken that boats big brother, a tandem Malibu 2, through up to class 2+ rapids and it performed far better than I expected. I've used the slightly smaller brother, the Scrambler rather than the Scrambler XT, surfing in ocean surf and it handled great. I think the Scrambler XT would do you real well.
