Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome kayak... My first sit on kayak to use and own. What an awesome way to spend time on the water! Very stable on the water, very easy to paddle and stays true (straight). Very fast through the water with little effort! I couldn't be happier with my purchase and look forward to many years of adventures from my Ocean Kayak Frenzy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ocean Kayak Frenzy Sit-On-Top Kayak We purchased 2 of the Ocean Frenzy kayaks and have really enjoyed them!! They are very stable while getting in and out of them, as well as in slightly rough water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kayak for the beginner, and others, too! My first ever kayak and I couldn't be happier with my choice. Sit-on-top is a great strategy for me, an older person with little experience and wonky knees that make it hard to climb into a sit-in. Solidly built, it is buoyant and stable. Its relatively light weight and many handles make it easy to move around on land. It glides easily through the water and is amazingly steerable, probably because of its substantial keel. The detachable and adjustable seat works well for me. It's a great beginner kayak, but I anticipate it will be fine for the long term, too, as long as I'm not aiming for whitewater use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I use to kayak a lot when I was younger and thought I would introduce my 10 yo to it, so we went with the sit on top. We both have loved this product. First time out he looked like a natural and really enjoyed, since then we have done some WC II. I really like it as well. It tracks well, is easy to paddle and maneuver, and very stable. Well worth it.

Questions & Answers

Would this kayak be good in waves? Would you recommend other models for waves?

Asked by: Mike D
Is great in waves.  Was designed to be in the Ocean not just flat water.  Also has no hatches to leak.  REI answer makes no sense.  Self-bailing, high volume, surfs waves, does it all.  More agile than the Scrambler 11 in the surf, which is also a capable boat in the waves.  Use a PFD and a paddle leash.  Thigh straps also a good idea though not essential.

Can a tall person (say 6 feet 4 inches) sit comfortably in this kayak?

Asked by: Mike
​It's plausible that you could paddle this boat comfortably but if you intend to paddle for hours at a time, a longer boat might be more comfortable.

Can you buy a comfort plus seat separately.  Mine went through superstorm and fell apart. If yes, price minus discount if purchased prior to 5/30. Thank you.
