We have two youth kayaks and love them. My 7 year old grandson can carry/drag it on his own and loves kayaking with them. They are small enough to put in the back of my outback wagon and fit right on top of each other. They also fit great in my roof racks. We went out on the Saco river yesterday and he paddled 2.5 hours downstream. I recommend them to everyone who has small children. My daughter who weighs 130# has used it on the lake too.
we bought two of these kayaks one for our 5 yr old and one for our 10 year old. they both can easily use these kayaks. we have used them on the lake in tahoe as eel as the bay in pt reyes ca. my kids love them and they are easy to transport on the roof of my small suv. we will buy these again!
We have absolutely loved our Lifetime kayaks! We bought one for each member in our family. I love the Wave youth kayaks because they are very durable yet light enough for them to all be able to carry their own.
Couldn't be happier with this kayak. I'm 6'1" 255 lbs, and have plenty of room. Very stable and tracks well - my 4'10" 62-yr-old wife, in her first time in a kayak, had a ball. She has tipped many a canoe, but she felt very stable in this. Seems to be solidly built, decent strength for all the fitting etc. At my age I get sore easy, but after 3 hours in this I was still very comfortable (shoulders were sore though) :-)
