The Tribute 12.0 does not have a skeg or rudder so paddling in a straight line during windy conditions could be a challenge. Having said that, the paddler will sit lower in the cockpit. This can make steering easier as you can use more of your body to steer.
It might take a couple of power strokes to get going but once you do get going, the Tribute will move easily through the water even in chop.
