I love this kayak and it is perfect for a newbie to kayaking. Easy to maneuver and fish. Plenty of storage and ways to set it up to your needs. Great Coustomer service at Austin Kayak and help for the first time buyer. Could not be happier!

Q: looking to by tarpon 120. I am 6f tall, my wife is 5'5, my kids are 4-5'. What paddle lengths are needed. Thanks.
A: The kids would want a 230cm paddle, the wife might want a 240cm. You could also use the 240cm but you might be more comfortable with 250cm. It depends on if you are more of a vertical or horizontal paddler.
