To begin with, ACK was great to deal with and the Estes Express driver went above and beyond on my delivery. Kayak arrived in perfect condition. I switched to the SOT due to knee problems (I couldn't last more than an hour in my sit in). The Ride 135 has definitely cured my endurance problem. Very easy in/out, I am able to shift positions easily because of the great stability of this kayak.Easy to paddle, faster than I expcted and maneuvers quite well. Very happy with this purchase!
I cant say enough about this kayak. It replaced an ocean kayak scrambler I used for years. It tracks great, I can easily stand in it. Plenty of storage. This being said its also much larger and heavier. With the rudder it gets close to 14 feet long so make sure you have a spot to store it. I have mainly used it on lakes and rivers but next month is our annual trip to Hatteras and I cant wait to get it out in the surf to see how stable it is.
