These kayaks are the entry level for beginners wanting to learn the foundation skills of kayaking in general and moving water. They can be used on flat or low grade moving water and offer the stability beginners need to gain confidence. Generally they have a more basic outfitting and a hull that is easier to learn skills in, like rolling. They are a bit of an all rounder and as a result they can limit how far a paddler may progress in white water.
With any white water kayak we strongly advise you to learn the skills required to control one before rushing into a purchase. Your local Canoe & Kayak store can offer you advice and courses to get you the skills you need to get started. If purchasing a white water kayak it is crucial you get the right style and fit of kayak for you. Visit your specialist retailer to try them for size first or get the advice you need.
