The standard Adventure 102 kayak from Future Beach is one of those kayaks that was designed purely to appeal to beginners. This is thanks to its width, which makes it very stable as well as its compact size, that makes it easy to transport. However, the lack of rod holders amongst other things meant that it wasn't exactly a good choice for a fishing kayak. Surprisingly, Future Beach decided to turn it into a fishing version by making a few small adjustments to the basic Adventure design.

 

The Adventure 102F is an 8'6" kayak, which makes it amongst one of the most compact ones that are available. It also only weighs about 39 lbs, but can handle a fairly decent load of up to 295 lbs. Future Beach has retained the multi channel hull design for the kayak, which means that it is still good at tracking and able to offer fairly decent stability. It also comes with an adjustable step lock foot rest system.

 

With a small kayak like this there is always a concern about space for gear and the Adventure 102F is no exception. It has a decent amount of space in the stern well for storage, but don't expect to be able to carry along as much gear as you can fit in a typical fishing kayak. In addition to the stern well, it also has front and rear bungees that can be used to secure additional items. In front of the seat you will find a molded-in cup holder, but most anglers would probably have preferred space here for a swivel rod holder. Future Beach has at least included two flush mount rod holders behind the seat.

 

Speaking of the seat, the Adventure 102F has a full seat-back and seat cushion, which is a step up from the standard Adventure 102. It has integrated rear drain plugs, coaming pads and you'll also find a paddle keeper on the right side of the kayak. Overall, the Adventure 102F is not a bad kayak, but there are so many other fishing kayaks available on the market that it is hard to recommend one that is this small. If you never plan on venturing out on anything bigger than a small lake and value convenience more than space for more gear, then it might be worth your while, but serious anglers will probably want to shop around for something that offers them a little more for their money.
