The Necky Rip 12 has a stable hull but efficient design making it perfect for growing paddling skills without sacrificing fun on the water. A roomy cockpit and stable hull provide the reassurance you need to feel confident on the water. And Necky put many of the best characteristics of their high-end sea kayaks into the Rip series hulls, these entry-level kayaks perform. The rip has an efficient hull with a sharp keel to provide tremendous glide. Lively and playful on the water, the Rip won't disappoint. The Support Track Foot Brace System is intuitive, easy to reach, and quick to adjust. The contoured rubber is comfortable and offers a great grip, even with bare feet.
We are both new to Kayaking, but we did some research & spoke to a lot of people who knew more than us. We wanted Kayaks that were a better quality. we decided on the Necky Rip 12 & so far we are very happy with them. They are nice looking & after 2 trips out in them, we are pleased with the quality, the price & the function.
