Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this kayak! I love this kayak. I am a beginner-intermediate paddler. It handles very well without the rudder but the rudder is nice to put down when it's windy. I love the day hatch is roomy and within reach while paddling. It can hold a couple of water bottles and a few snacks. It has nice rigging in all the right places. The hatch covers are very easy to put on and remove and have a "tupperware" like seal on them. I am able to stow my wheels in the back hatch as well.

Questions & Answers

I have a very long back, and would like to know if there is a way or a kit to install a higher back support than the one on this boat. I tried it at maximum height, and I'd like to get about 5 inches more height. Any ideas?

I don't know if you *can* put an extension in, but I know you don't want to put one in. Touring kayaks are designed with low seat backs for a specific set of reasons. 1. While going into a "power" position to paddle, you lean more forward/upright. 2. While doing a self-rescue, the seatback is either mashed down/forward as you slide back into the cockpit or scuffs along your legs/PFD... a higher back would make it more difficult to attempt a re-entry. You can find several recreation kayaks that have much higher backs, or contact a touring kayak manufacturer to see if they might do a special fitting for you.
