This is my first kayak I paddle on the Ottawa River and every second day; my route is about 10 km (according to goole Earth).
Yesterday I went out with my friend on my regular outing, he kicked my butt all the way and on top of that he was not even trying to go fast. By the time our ride was done I was dead tired…. Usually when we cross-country ski in the winter I’m the one in front.
I wish that my Inuvik would be has fast has is old wood kayak… What I have learned from reading comments and reviews this website is to trust your instinct and even if 500$ kayak has a satisfaction rating of 10/10 it does not mean it will be has good has a 3000$ kayak
Overall I like the Inuvik but wish it was faster.
