Love my new Perception Hi Life 11.0 Kayak. It is super stable and works great as both kayak and SUP. As expected, it is awkward and difficult to handle out of the water alone for me at 5'4", but I added handles on both sides to help grip it and it is more manageable.
I use it in lakes and rivers including Lake Michigan and it does awesome! I can stand up and dive off of it (as long as there is no precious cargo aboard), I mounted a rod holder for my fly rod on the gear track and a cooler fits great on the back. I'm 260 pounds and it handles myself plus a cooler with no problem. Going down a popular river, we probably had at least 10 different groups asking what it was and saying "thats awesome!" It handles very well standing up as well.
