Simply put .... love it!!!! Thank you
This kayak has the most comfortable seat made since they recently changed from a clip in to a lawn chair style seat- it's height/tilt/lumbar adjustable for awesome comfort and support without interfering with a proper paddle stroke. The fit and finish and features are unmatched. Some of my favorite features are the side mesh pockets, 3 large easy to use sealed hatches, comfort carry handles, molded in rod holders, very comfortable and large rotating foot rests, dual paddle keepers, 3 water bottle holders, gear bucket for mid hatch, replaceable skid plate and the list goes on and on. The kayak is surprisingly stable even with the seat at it's highest setting( I'm 6' and weigh 200 lbs) The Quest 11 has very good speed and glide and also tracks fantastic- no need for a rudder since it's so short. I recently demoed a 14' sea kayak while my wife paddled the Quest 11 and she kept up with me just fine. It's relatively light and easy to move round out of the water especially with a scupper cart. Hobie has reinforced scupper holes so plug in cart use doesn't void the warranty. This kayak is more expensive than other brands but it's because it's a better quality and well designed paddling watercraft. EPIC win for Hobie on the Quest 11.
