Future Beach Spirit 120 Kayak
Love this kayak!
This kayak is a great value for someone who is a beginner kayaker! It is easy to paddle and control, the balance is great and it is easy to carry! I highly recommend it and I am wanting to buy another one to have to take my friends, who don't own a kayak! Wonderful value!

Great little Kayak
I bought this kayak in December when Dick's had it sale. I finally got it our on the water a week ago. This boats tracks very straight. Can be a little difficult to turn, however, most folks probably like this feature. Great boat, great price.

It made a believer of me.
I didn't expect tons out of it but I was pleasantly surprised. This was my first boat and I easily got the hang of it. Within 100 yards or so I was comfortable enough to fish from it. I'm a bigger guy, 6'3 225 lbs. I had no problem getting in or out of the boat. It tracks to so well that tight turns can be tricky sometimes. I love the boat and couldn't begin to tell you how many fish I've caught from it.

Great buy for fishing.
Bought this kayak over the summer after using a sit-in for a year. It's great for fishing and easy to paddle. I like to hang my legs off the side and fish, and this boat is perfectly stable enough to do so. The lack of storage space was easily solved by adding a crate to the back and attaching it to the side carry handles and rear chord for stability. Keeps everything within reach.

I bought this kayak for my 12 year old son to use on the local river and on lakes we visit. He is a big kid, weighing around 160lbs. This kayak was perfect for him. He was able to manuver it well, even on still water. He is a novice kayaker and he immediately was able to keep a straight line paddling, and turn with ease. It's light weight enough for him to load and unload on his own. I also used it on a trip with some friends, letting one of my friends use my 12' sit-on-top kayak that cost $600. I weigh 250 lbs, and was far more comortable in this smaller kayak. The curved seat area is just right to lean back against, which I've found an issue in other sit on top kayaks. Overall, if you are just a hobby kayaker, and not trying to travel white water, and on a budget, this kayak is perfect

2 years and holding up great
I've used this kayak for over 2 years now, floating some mid-Missouri rivers. Tracks really well, very stable. Great for fishing out of. Would like to get another one for my wife, so we can go tandem.

Wasn't sure if kayaking was for us till we tried out this kayak that was owned by a family member. First time out my wife and I took turns trying it and ended up having hours of fun. I have back issues and the molded back rest is great. We have, (since our intro), purchased one each. We are now enthusiasts who try and get out each weekend. We've had the kayaks out in Tampa Bay, the Weeki Wachee river, canals, and tributaries off the bay. Its so relaxing to paddle out a ways then just stop paddling and listen to the quiet. We've seen dolphins arching in the bay, mullets jumping in canals, and manatees swimming past us.

This is a great, lightweight kayak. I use it on ponds, lakes and some rivers. It's great for beginners. It is very stable! It could use a bigger dry storage area, but it's ok. Also it would be nice if a paddle holder was included.

Bought this kayak based on other people's reviews but don't usually write them myself BUT i have to brag up this kayak! I love it and have since i purchased it a few months ago. I love the sit on top, very easy to transport and easy to maneuver. This past weekend we were transporting it and one of the rachet straps that was holding it down broke. Luckily, no other vehicles were involved, but we found the kayak 10-15 feet in the ditch along the highway and it was still all in one piece with just a scratch or two. I'm amazed at how well it held up and only more impressed!
