Fit - incredible! (I'm 6'4' 250 lbs) The adjustable on the water foot brace system is outstanding. I have about 1-2 inches of spare room that I can let out when relaxing, and crank in when in Rapids. Could have used a bit longer back band, but I haven't had a problem with it. The hip pads are just right, didn't have to adjust them at all. On the Water- Paddles great, first WW boat I paddled that stays fairly straight (they all spin as soon as you take your paddle out on flatwater though). As for playing with this boat, with my real limited ability I've been able to stand it up on nose about at 45 degrees. And I also have no problem getting the stern under. But it also floats me incredibly well. I did roll for the first time in my very first Pool session. That was a huge relief, now I have to work on that roll.
Overall - A Great Boat (and one of the only) for those 230lbs and heavier wanting to get into the Play aspect of WW. If your lighter than that, this Boat will be more suited for Creek type and River Running. I Love it! Well done Wavesport!
