The Ocean Kayak Frenzy Kayak performs well on surf, tight rivers, and flat water due to it's short length and built in keel. The Frenzy kayak is stable enough for beginning paddlers, but spunky enough to provide years of fun on a variety of water types. It is outfitted with a Comfort Plus seat, a skid plate, as well as hard plastic side carry handles.

Ordering a kayak thru the internet seemed strange to me, but it worked great from ACK. The Frenzy was wrapped securely. I opened it up for inspection before signing for the delivery. The kayak fit in my van...no need to load it on top. Easy to pick up for one person. The Frenzy is very stable and tracks well. I took a two hour paddle on a lake and that was about the perfect length of time. I wouldn't want to be in it all day, but with it being so easy to transport, I plan on taking it out frequently. It is not sleek and fast, and it generates a bow wave. I paddled a 11.5' kayak afterward and could easily notice a difference. However, I think that the Frenzy will give you more enjoyment on the water because you will use it more. Can't wait to try it on the waves at the beach. The seat promotes a more upright proper paddling position. When you want to lounge, you can lean your elbows back on the deck...really comfortable. It is so stable that you can look straight down into the water. Also, very easy to get in and out of it. I recommend that you go with a long paddle. I should have gotten a 240cm vs a 230cm. The sunrise color is gorgeous.
The Frenzy used to come with carry handles. Unfortunately Ok ships them with out not. Hard to carry without them. Pretty good fishing yak for the money though. I think you can add the handles for about $25...
We used this model in Florida while on vacation and loved the fact that it was so stable. We live on a lake in Ohio and bought two for everyday use. We were a little hesitant about ordering such a large purchase online, but everything worked out great. They are packaged well for shipping. Highly recommend!
Received my new Frenzy yesterday afternoon and I immediately took it out on the Potomac River for a few hours and I have to say it is just wonderful! This is my second Frenzy, the first one I had was about 10 years ago and I loved that one too! It was packaged by ACK very well. Bubble wrap, then cardboard, then heavy duty plastic over that. Arrived in pristine condition. These are short, wide, stable little boats. Very fun, and very stable in rough water. Not the fastest boat due to its width and length but then again it excels in what it is intended for, which is being a highly maneuverable and light boat and man, can you surf the heck out of it in good waves! These things are awesome to take to the coast to catch some hurricane effect waves! Great for fishing also. I have dragged the small, light Frenzy through forests to reach little hard-to-reach ponds that have most likely never seen a boat before and fished the parts away from shore with ease. A small fish on the line will drag you and your Frenzy around quite well! Bottom line, when I wanted to get a kayak again, I knew I wanted a Frenzy again, and I was happy they still made them! The side carry handles are a handy upgrade from the older version I had! If you want a light, handy boat that you can surf the snot out of or go exploring in, here is your boat!
