    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Emotion Kayaks Spitfire 9 Sit-On-Top Kayakis rated4.0out of5by1.
    Rated4out of5byfromDon't Rock My BoatSo i've read the reviews, heard all the stories of this boat not tracking well, and have come up with the solution. First let me say that I have paddled in the Blackfoot River/Clark Fork with this boat and yeah it tossed me around a little bit, it was difficult to track, and at first was very discouraging. However I have found a solution for my Spitfire 9, possibly the 8, and any other kayak that doesn't track as good as you hoped it would. ADD A FIN or SKEG. I have found the perfect one that fits this kayak, it is quite easy to install the way I did, and actually held up very well crashing through the rocky shoreline of the Flathead Lake at Big Arm this weekend. I have found this to be a really fun recreational kayak with this fin/skeg modification. There is plenty of leg room (even enough for an english bulldog), the front tank well fits a 5L dry bag (the 5L also fits perfectly into the hatch), and the rear tank well is sized to fit a pfd perfectly (so you can always have one with you if needed). I replaced all the bungee cord with quality shock cord from REI as well. The front and rear handles are great and comfortable but the side handles are practically useless which makes loading the boat on and off the roof of your vehicle a task. However the boat feels waaay lighter that 45lbs, which is nice. All in all I love this kayak, I could see myself getting the blue one also in the future. With the addition of the fin/skeg mod, this is a great recreational kayak...and to everyone that has this kayak and isn't happy with the tracking I suggest you do the same. It makes all the difference!
