Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this boat! I love this boat! I am a 66 year old female and wanted a boat that I could lift to the top of my car, tracks well, is well made and comfortable. This boat has met every one of those requirements -- and it's great to look at as well. I've had it on reservoirs and even some Class 1 rapids on the Colorado River and it handles like a dream. Just the right size for me -- I'm 5'5". But all of my friends have tried it out, and it has fit men up to 5'10" as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice kayak, but not a good fit for us This kayak is very well made and super light (only 32 for this year's model). For being only 10 feet long it tracks well and is surprisingly quick. And as Eddyline promised, they will not sink no matter what (yes, we fell over in them in the lake). However, they do not come with leg braces by default. These must be ordered at the time of manufacture and cannot be added after the fact, according to Eddyline customer service. This is unfortunate, since we are very small, somewhat skinny people, and we had trouble controlling the boats since we could not use our legs to contact the boat well enough. At 26" wide, it was still too wide for us without the optional thigh braces. Definitely INCLUDE THE BRACES when you order the boats if you think that will be an issue for you. Note that Eddyline's Rio comes with leg braces by default. We probably will switch to the Rio when it arrives at REI. It is also a more narrow boat than this one. In any case, these boats are very nice -- extremely well made. If they fit you or if you can get them with leg braces, they are sure to be enjoyable kayaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sky 10 makes me want to kayak even more! This is my first kayak to own, however I've been kayaking quite a few times before. I can't emphasize enough how practical and easy this kayak is to use. It's light weight makes it super easy to handle, and it's very stable once you're in the water. The kayak seems to glide over the water with ease, making the experience peaceful and relaxing. A truly wonderful recreational kayak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little boat! I am a new kayaker. I've been canoeing for years so I know my way around small boats well enough, so I suppose I'm not a total novice. I wanted a small, light weight, easy to handle craft for solo paddling on weekends and short cruises after work on weekdays. I've taken the Sky10 out numerous times in the last month or so, on big rivers, small windy rivers, lakes, ponds... The Sky 10 has been excellent for my purposes! I can't give a great comparative review as I have such limited experience with other kayaks, but here goes anyways: -Stability - no issues. Youtube how to get in and out of a kayak, and follow the instructions. You'll have no issues with flipping while getting in and out. Once in the water, I've had no trouble, even when dealing with 2 foot waves from a power boater's wake (I was able to take that wake on the bow, it may have gone differently if I took it flat on the port side). -Tracking - no major issues. I really don't have a good comparison point. When I give a stroke on the port side... yeah, it does drift to the starboard... but... I suspect all kayaks will do this to some extent, and it is certainly manageable in the Sky 10. If I paddle close in to the hull or if I paddle with a moderate stroke, I have no problem navigating a reasonably straight line. It's not frustrating.. maybe that's the bottom line! -Speed - My research indicates that a shorter kayak is naturally slower than a longer kayak. I have not yet gone on a paddle with another kayaker to compare speeds against another kayak. But with a moderately powerful stroke I can easily get and maintain a good speed and get a pleasing gurgle of rushing water in my bow. It feels fast, and accelerates responsively. -Turning - turns like a dream, under full steam or just rotating in place. I feel like the short keel makes the kayak turn very responsively. -Looks - this is a personal thing of course, but this is a very sharp looking craft in my opinion. -Quality - Well, when I look around at all of the Emotion kayaks out there that are deformed while strapped onto the roofs of the cars I'm passing on the highway... I know that the rigid hull of my Eddyline Sky10 is of a higher quality. When I crank down on the straps to keep my Sky10 securely on the roof during highway speeds, my CAR flexes and my kayak does not. -Comfort - I sat in a few kayaks at REI while shopping around, and in all of the other kayaks I immediately felt uncomfortable in the seats. The Sky10 has a great seat. Like most it is adjustable, so you can get the right angle for your back, and you can also adjust it during a longer cruise to change up pressure points for your back/bottom. -Value for the price - This isn't a cheap kayak. I do feel like the quality and capabilities of the Sky10 warrants the price. I spent the money on this Eddyline Sky10 because I wanted to make one purchase, instead of going the cheaper route and upgrading in a few years. I expect that some younger family member will inherit this kayak when I'm gone, and I think they'll appreciate that I spent the bigger money for the better boat just as much as I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far, so awesome Super light. Tracks well while also being nimble. The boat is really nice looking. I've only used it once but love it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Commentary on Thighbraces There are several reviews that mention the preference for thighbraces on the sky 10. Rest assured that this boat does feature thigh pads under the deck, and for most users, this is the most desired (and Eddyline recommended) configuration. Some smaller paddlers, that come from a reference of a touring kayak fit, have special ordered with additional thigh braces as pictured on the Equinox. These sized paddlers may also consider the Rio. Ease of entry and comfort for mid to larger size paddlers is reduced with this feature. Eddyline also sells a “Sandpiper knee pad” that is also an after market comfort option for resting your legs against the cockpit (knees up). Please do not fall into the trap that just because an option is out here that it is best for you. Not every reviewer here is your size! The Sky 10 is designed to be an easy entry and versatile performance rec kayak. If a tighter fit is desired, please check out more advanced models.

Questions & Answers

Does the Eddyline Sky 10 have a drain plug?  A paddle holder?

Asked by: Nancycarol
There is not a drain plug in any sit inside Eddyline Kayak because ALL OF THEIR sit in models have a front and rear bulkhead (for storage/safety). Similar to a touring kayak, the bulkheads offer dry storage and floatation fore and aft. A drain plug would therefore be useless since only the cockpit region can take on water which can quickly be drained as you would any touring model.

My husband is 6'2" 210 lbs and my son is 6'4" 200 lbs is this boat too small for them?

Asked by: JamieH
This boat is a great choice for your husband and son. The cockpit measures 35 x 18.5 inches which gives them a lot of room.

I'm thinking of using this inside the san francisco bay (generally pretty flat but if the wind picks up the waves may be significant).  Is this boat one that would be used in a large body of water like the bay or should I look for a sea kayak?

Asked by: TomJ
​This boat is designed to be used on flat water including calm bays. The San Francisco bay can get quite choppy so you may consider a more sea worthy boat if you plan to use it during the less calm times.
