Dare to Compare

This Kayak was well made for the price. However I purchased both the 8 ft and 10 ft unit to compare figuring I keep one for myself the other for my 8 yr old son. The Kayak states it can handle up to 265 lbs. so I felt my 5'10" 200 lbs. would work fine in this 8 ft. vessel too! It worked but I was disappointed with the performance compared to the 10 ft. unit. It was much slower and did not track as well as the 10 ft. Kayak. Those extra 2 ft. made a big difference in performance. The stability just was not there when compared to the other unit. (I flipped it first time out and I have never done that in all my 30 plus years of experience.) In addition, the enclosed dry storage, foot pegs and padded knee rest are standard on the Sun Dolphin Aruba 10' Kayak worth the price difference! I have order another 10 ft unit to replace this 8 ft Kayak which I plan to return ASAP. I really did like the smaller size for transport inside my Fiat 500 or Jeep Patriot but stability was the deciding factor for me. Hope this helps in your decision making process.

Great little boat.

This is a great boat, I got the eight foot so it would fit in the bed of my truck. I don't need a trailer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is an excellent little kayak for a woman. Took it out today for the first time. Very easy to handle and maneuver in and out of the water. Good price too!

Great Value

is very light weight, has a wide opening, and holds more than 260 lbs easily. Was tested over 300 with gear, cup holder is nice feature to put id and cell phone in while kayaking. Only 8 ft fits inside my saturn sw1 when i put the seat down, as i do not have a roof rack yet. Awesome.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
