I had no kayak experience four years ago when I purchased my Helios kayak for use when we travel around in our motorhome. Since purchasing my Helios kayak I have used it extensively in lakes, rivers and the sea for fishing and exploring. The kayak is stable and easy to paddle and I have used it in some pretty rough waters.
When inflated it is every bit as good, if not better, as a hard plastic type kayak and you have the advantage of packing it up in a travel bag!
