I used my kayak today for the first time. I must say that I was a little disappointed. This is in comparison to my friend's kayak, which is about a foot longer. Mine is a little more tippy, and it felt like I was going to tip it over on a few hooksets. I never felt that way at all in my friend's. It also kept doing a 180 if there was even a slight breeze, which I found rather annoying. I could understand if it was really windy, but it wasn't. In fact, I could hardly feel the breeze but I kept having to adjust the kayak. The guy at Dick's said I could take it back. I don't like doing thing like that, but I think I'm going to.
