The Ascend D10T sit-on kayak is a good entry level kayak. It's 10' length makes it easy to transport. It's not fast but is easy to paddle and tracks fairly well. I'm 6'3" and 250 lbs. A little bit tall for the foot rest. Someone a little shorter would fit better. The factory seat sits flat on the floor right over the scupper holes. Your backside will get wet. With the raised seat I put in it, stability was still very good. I have not tried standing in it. It handles large boat wakes with ease. I have yet to have one come over the bow. With all the open storage areas, I don't feel crowded by the fishing gear I take on it. It handles pretty good in the wind. Sitting still, it has a tendency for the stern to move downwind. But if you are moving any at all it stays on course. For the price of $399.99 I feel like it is a good value for your money.
