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.

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!
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...
Was so happy with the Frenzy and the ACK customer service that I just ordered a second one. Not sure how they manage free shipping but that was the deal maker plus the great price. We use it on the Mendocino coast in California for abalone diving, crab fishing and sightseeing and it is the perfect size for us. For the second one, I have ordered the 6 inch hatch and a small dry bag to hang in it. Will update this review after using those.
Received my Frenzy just after Christmas and it was in very good shape. I already have a tandem Ocean Kayak and really wanted a single that was shorter and easier to handle alone. So, I took it out 3 times in the last 2 weeks in a river between cold fronts and it is great. Very easy for me to take in and out of water and rides great. Glides thru the water easily and not hard to maneuver at all. Will most likely use it in rivers and the seat and handles on the side are a bonus.
