Primary Stability

Primary stability is a reflection of how stable the kayak feels while sitting still on a calm body of water. A high primary stability is perfect for beginners, photographers and fisherman alike.

Secondary Stability

Secondary stability is the stability felt while edging the boat (leaning the kayak on one side using your hips). A kayak with a poor secondary will require a stronger bracing technique to edge with confidence.

Handling vs Tracking

There is no right or wrong answer here. A kayak that tracks more (more grey) will be easy to keep on a straight course. A loose kayak (more blue) will be easy to turn on a dime and change direction quickly.

Speed

This is the general speed of the kayak, combining acceleration, cruising speed, top speed and how easy it is to keep.

This represents the total inside storage volume the kayak offers. Rudder equipped kayaks tend to have more storage compared to skegs that take up some space in the rear hatch. A high rating for storage is perfect for a touring paddler.

Beginner

The most important thing to consider while choosing the right kayak is the paddler themselves. One key factor is the skill level of the paddler. The skill level represents what is needed to use the kayak to its full potential. Starting out with an expert boat will not make you a better kayaker and can even hinder your progression.
