ACK Review: When I first used this board, I stood right up, it was that easy! It is very stable and offers the ability to wrestle the most cantankerous of fish. The Board also sports 2 rod holders as well as bungee cargo areas. This board is so versatile; I chose to add a seat which allowed me to stay out on the water much longer.

Ok, first the pros: I love the minimalistic design; the color and fit and finish are excellent; the sit down comfort with the swivel seat with upgraded first class seat covers is the best in the business; everyone loves it and asks what it is; it's extremely stable and easy to stand on; the transport wheel works great on cement/hard pack; the drop down, spring loaded skeg helps tracking immensely; the weight isn't bad for a kayak; grove track adds easily accessible no-drill accessory mounting locations and it's just a really beautiful kayak in the blue lagoon color! It's great for minimal kayaking/standup going downstream, the ability to sit or stand makes it very versatile and excellent for a full body workout and kids and dogs love the stability and open deck space/design (and adults and fishermen/women too!) Ok, to be fair, now the cons: The hull glide is pretty awful with this board/yak - when standing, it goes nowhere when your paddle isn't pushing water, and when sitting and paddling, it isn't much better. Open water, wind, current and distances are not your friend and you will tire easily in these conditions; the rear wheel isn't good on soft surfaces; side handles! I always find myself reaching for side handles when moving this board around, and there are none, which makes it much more awkward to move around and makes it seem heavier than it is; while the swivel seat is awesome, the price isn't - $309 for the basic sling version, and then add another $120 or so for the upgraded First Class Seat covers, which makes for a really pricy seat! (Still, it is beyond compare for comfort, and I've owned or tried almost all of them, including the Hobie Vantage seats.) So my final verdict? This is an excellent minimalist kayak/SUP/all around playboard with great stability and everything you need to have a blast on the water, as long as you don't need to get there quickly or cover great distances in wind and/or current. (And with the swivel seat with First Class Seat covers, you'll do it in style and comfort!) It truly is a Versa Board! Redesign the hull with more glide built into it, and it would be one of my favorite all around paddle kayaks!

Very stable, great fishing platform. It's not fast so I would not use it for long distance outings, but the versatility to use it as a kayak or paddleboard is great. The negatives are that it is a noisy watercraft. Due to the shape of the hull, there is a lot of water slap noise against the hull in anything but very calm waters. Also, I had to install side grab handles because this board doesn't have any. Side handles make lifting the board by myself much easier than the single center handle. Last, you have to purchase an additional seat unless you want to be sitting in a puddle of water in the indented seat that's molded into the hull. I purchased the expensive first class swivel seat.

The board is AMAZING!!! - would be even better if maybe there were handles on the sides of the board for easier two person transport?....or better grip or positioning on the ends of the board. While the wheel is GREAT - sometimes we need to carry a longer distance. It is awkard to carry with the handles on the ends of the board.

Super stable, easy to go from standing to sitting and back on the water. Great for river and flats fishing, lots of fun in the surf too.

This boat is awesome! The Versa board has great stability both as a kayak and as a SUP. The rudder is a great addition, it really helps you keep going straight, even against the wind. Also, the wheel at the back is genius, it makes it so much easier to transport by yourself. Nothing wrong with it at all.

The Versa Board Angler is exactly what we were looking for in a hybrid SUP/Kayak! It truly acts as both a versatile SUP with great stability and a ready angling partner with great fishing capability. The Versa gets daily use from our home on an ocean bay in New England. We would recommend the Versa to anyone looking for true hybrid performance in a rock solid configuration!
