With a sit-in kayak you sit on the bottom of the hull and there is an opening on the top deck. This configuration allows the kayak to be more narrow which means greater speed.
The drawback with a sit-in kayak is skill level; one needs to be able to flip the kayak upright without flooding the hull.
The other design is a sit-on kayak, where you sit on the deck. This places weight above the water line and that requires that the hull is made wider.
Easy enough for the kids or adults to handle. This kayak is short and stable yet lightweight. A nimble performer that turns really easily and has lots of features and comfort offerings for a few hours or even a day out paddling. The open cockpit houses a large, comfortable moulded padded seat and backrest, adjustable backrest and an easy to reach, under tray for storing your phone or camera, sunscreen or snacks. Also comes in a basic model (excludes rear hatch, parcel tray, bungee cord, comfort seat) - POA
