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...
I bought the Ocean Kayak Frenzy about a month ago. I am a fairly experience kayaker, both lakes and rivers, but as I get older I find the ride-in kayak I have more difficult to get in and especially out of. People told me the solution was a sit on kayak. I did some research and found the Frenzy to be both highly rated and also affordable. My one concern was some reviews that said the seat was too narrow. I am 6 foot 1 inch and 240 pounds, but found the seat to be no problem and quite comfortable. The kayak is everything I hoped for. It is easy to carry, stable, easy to handle, moves wells and tracks well - and it certainly is easier to get in and out of. I am very pleased.
Ordered an Ocean Kayak Frenzy the middle of July and I received it the middle of August. I knew on the front end that there would be a shipping delay of one to two weeks. But, it took four weeks. This was not an ACK problem, as there was a back order from the factory. So, you may want to check to make sure item is in stock if you are ordering during peak season. The kayak was well packaged when I received it. I took it to a local lake for it's maiden voyage and it performed well. This kayak is very stable, turns quickly with a minimum of input. It is not fast, but that's not what I purchased it for. I plan to use it on lakes and slow rivers for fishing and I plan to take it to the beach for playing in the surf. Scupper plugs are needed to keep from getting wet. This kayak is light enough that I can put it on top of SUV by myself. I think this will make a great multi-purpose kayak.
