"This is my all-time favorite kayak. It can be run on flat water and whitewater. It includes a skeg to track straight on the flat water and can be raised to have a little fun on a bit of whitewater. It is extremely stable and comfortable, which is exactly what I need. It, also, has a lot of storage space. The best part is the rear hatch, which I actually use for a beer cooler! Pretty nifty. "
