    Hey guys!

    With all the yellowtail biting in La Jolla, I am so eager to try this new kayak out.
    made an unboxing video of my first ever kayak. I have been the person , always borrowing kayaks, but now I have my own. I will be updating you guys with some of my fishing trips with this vessel. hopefully some yellowtail, hopefully some halibut :)

    tight lines!

    Congrats - as was told to me: "take it out and get some blood on it!"

    That's a super nice platform that should due you well. At 13' 100lbs is about standard. My Feel Free 13 was 100 and my PA14 is over a 100. I agree, the propulsion system does go a good ways below the hull. Looking forward to some offshore videos.

    Looking forward to seeing how that pedal drive does around kelp. Most of them are not too nice, would be cool if that thing holds up

    You won't have the problem of the prop hitting the bottom in La Jolla.









    OK I lied. There's shallow water at the launch. But usually only a problem when you're upside down.
