Rated 2 out of 5 by from Out of water its great! In the water a disappointment. What I like about my new kayak is it's light weight and fits in my SUV. I bought this model because I needed something I could load and unload myself into my Toyota SUV. It's great for that alone. Once I got it in the water I was very disappointed. Maybe if I was using it to paddle just a bit out for fishing it would suffice. This kayak is the most difficult kayak for paddling I have ever experienced. It is so short that unless I was in glass like waters, I was struggling to make it move. Even the wind effects its performance. I have been kayaking every year for at least 10 years and really wanted to own my own...this was a real disappointment. I also want to add that it was not comfortable due to the size. I am a 5' 3" 115 lb female and my legs and feet were cramping by the end of my 2 hour trip in this kayak. I regret my purchase and will likely sell it used. I would have given it only 1 star but thought this kayak might work out for someone who is using it to fish or doesn't mind the intense workout to go such a short distance. Don't expect to glide or coast in this kayak. When you stop paddling it stops moving. No fun!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good buy! Fun lightweight kayak This Kayak is great for the price! It's light weight and attractive! A lot of fun! Easy to paddle. Cons: It's more tippy then expected! There is also a minimum amount of storage and if you don't want to wear a life vest, strapping it to the rear will take up all of your free space! Lastly, other stores offer a free paddle with this Kayak, but Dicks did not include one! Overall, I am pretty happy with my purchase and can not wait to take these babies back out on the river!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bali 8 ss Had this for a part of the season now only bought it for river trips down river nobody ever runs a kayak down the price is right for something you don't have to worry about hurting it I let my friends kids play with it and don't have to worry about it getting beat up but if you wait over 150 pounds forget it tracks terribly

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SO uncomfortable! This is the least comfortable kayak I've ever used. It is hard and not at all ergo-friendly. There are no foot pegs or braces. Sun dolphin has awful customer service, too. I contacted them to find out how to make this comfortable enough to use and they deflected my question 3 times. I'm a petite female- I can't even imagine how bad this would be for a bigger person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Christmas Gifts Bought 2 Kayaks just the right size for my 2 Grandsons. We have a boat down the shore, and kids have them and they go out into the river. They tried them out and of course they want them season is just about over, Santa will deliver these. 5 stars for the quality, size, and price. Their Dad will have to get one next season to go out with the boys. We know where to buy it Thank you so much.
