Excellent buy for your child!
Excellent buy! Very stable and easily maneuvered! We bought this for our daughters 8th birthday. She is very tall (about as tall as your average 10-11 yr old) for her age and about 97 lbs. We let her try this out in the pool to see how she handled it before turning her loose in the river. She has ridden in canoes and kayaks but never been in one alone. She was instantly able to maneuver this kayak wherever she wanted. We took her to the river and she did great. She was able to glide right through the rapids and never tipped over. She was also able to stop and hold this kayak in the rapids also which is a huge plus! She was also able to get off and on it with ease in the deeper areas of the river. It is light enough that we did not have to help her at all throughout the day, while stopping to play in the water or on the sand bars (we did take it to the water's edge when starting our adventure and put it in the truck at the end) . This is the perfect kayak for a child! We did buy a seat and a net to put on this, though I am not sure they are the correct size, as we were not able to put them on before we went kayaking, but she never complained of being uncomfortable and we just carried her drink and snacks with us. We were on the water for about 6 hours including stops along the way.

My son loved it! Small enough to fit in the back ...
We bought this for our 9 year old who is getting into fishing. It arrived quicker than stated. Although it did arrive in a plastic bag which was ripped and had some scratches on the hull but we really didn't mind due to using it right after. My son loved it! Small enough to fit in the back of the truck. Light enough for my son to carry. Its extremely stable so he is able to stand on it while fishing. I have a kayak so mine is a little faster but I would rather have a stable platform for my son. Great product may buy another for the older son!

Great kids kayak, fun for all ages.
By Stephanie Slenker
My 10 year old son is about 4'7" weights about 65# and can maneuver this kayak with ease. Actually both my 7 and 5 year olds can use it easily as well. Floats stable, tracks fairly true for a kid's kayak. Only reason I gave it a 4 star rating is that I wish the paddle was adjustable, so as the kids grow the paddle could too. Paddle seems a bit short for my 10 year old. But, can't beat the price for a kayak and a paddle for a kid just looking to try it out and have some fun on the water!
