I've seen it and wouldn't waste my money on it. A plastic, or fiberglass, boat will be faster and more stable. It will also "track" better through the water because they have a keel of some sort.

Check out the kayak thread under the general freediving section.

just my $0.02,

Jon

i would second jons post. theres a lot of rigid sit on top kayaks out there, one can find used ones for not a lot of money. they are durable, simple and paddle better than inflatables that i've seen. the longer the kayak the better it will paddle (faster and tracking), but a longer kayak is tougher to transport. the shorter kayaks do better in surf conditions, but for long distance paddling not so good. check out cobra, necky, hobie, malibu, just to name a few. the inflatable looks small for the amount of gear it has in the picture as compared to other kayaks. i've seen guys use a tandem sit on top for one person with gear, depending on what you want to carry. good luck

I just found an old windsurf board washed up on the shore other day. It's great! Very very fast. You can rig straps to hold things down for you.

Highly recommend a free windsurf board over a kayak!

Cheers!
