I am 5'11" 220lbs with a shoe size of 12. Been paddling for about 10 years. I demo'd the Bahiya last weekend out in New Jersey in a calm lake with zero wind. Didn't spend the day in it but would have liked to. As far as the fit of the boat around my stocky frame, I have to say it fit like a glove. Very comfortable for me. First boat I ever got into that fit me perfectly.
As other reviewers have said, the boat gets up to speed very quickly. Very fast. With a committed edge you can make the boat turn easily for you. Rolls rather easily. Beautiful looking boat. Didn't play with the skeg at all. Plenty of room fore and aft for gear and possibly a 10 day trip.
Will demo the Tiderace Xplore-S before I pull the trigger on the Bahiya.
