Riot Kayaks has a range of fishing kayaks that are designed to be shorter and more maneuverable. At 11'9” the Enduro 12 Angler is one of longer kayaks in their range, but still short enough to be easy to handle. According to Riot Kayaks, the Enduro 12 Angler is a short kayak that was made for extended fishing trips, which means it offers plenty of storage capacity. However, it also comes with a bunch of other features to make your time out on the water more enjoyable.

The Enduro 12 is a sit-inside kayak with a 38” x 20” cockpit size and an overall weight of just below 61 lbs. It comes with two bulkhead sealed compartments that feature Thermolite hatch covers. The added advantage of these sealed bulkhead hatches is that the kayak also has additional buoyancy if you do manage to flip it. On the foredeck you’ll also find shockcord storage for additional gear. To help with tracking, this kayak also features a Track-Rite skeg system, which also helps to give it more maneuverability. With the skeg up you can take this kayak into very shallow water and not worry about bottoming out. The Enduro 12 tends to not perform as well in choppy water, even with the skeg down, but for anything less than about one foot chop you’ll still get great tracking. Overall, the Enduro 12 is more than stable enough to offer a great fishing experience though.

The Enduro 12 has rubber handles for an easier grip while carrying it comes with plenty of leg room. For a sit-in kayak that is aimed at traveling long distances the seat could have been more comfortable, but this is something that can be rectified with a few custom modifications. It is a basic padded seat and the back of the seat can also slip out of its insertion points a little too easy for our liking. It does have impulse thighbraces and quick lock adjustable footbraces, which are nice additions. Behind the seat you’ll find the flush mount rod holders, while up front there is a swivel rod holder.

The overall design of the Enduro 12 looks nice enough and it also has reflective lifelines for added safety. It’s retail price is in the region of $800, so it’s not the cheapest fishing kayak on the market, but it is stable, lightweight and offers plenty of storage.
