  1. Garil

    I have been using the Challenger Intex inflatable kayak for years and years because it was cheap and easy. After recently using a friend’s Tributary Strike inflatable kayak, I realized what I have been missing out on. I couldn’t find those rafts online, in-stock so I took a chance on this kayak.
    I LOVE it. It’s super light (I’m 5’6″ and about 125lbs) and super easy pack around. It’s really easy to inflate. I have used it once for a long river float with some Class 1 rapids. I bought a bilge pump to expel any excess water that got in the raft as I navigated any stronger current or small rapids. The seat was more comfortable than the Tributary Strike raft and all around I thought this raft was functional, comfortable and all around a good fit for me and my activity level which is primarily paddling on Class A and Class 1 water. I hope this helps any readers on the fence.

    First the good news. We were looking for lightweight but sturdy kayaks that are easy to carry and easy to enter & exit. This kayak checks all the boxes! Comfortable adjustable seat is a bonus. They’re easy to maneuver and carry! My wife just turned 80 and she’s carrying her own kayak down to the water! Now for the only flaw: there is a design flaw in either the inflation valves or the adapter supplied with the kayak. It took me a long time to figure out that the spring in the valve was not being released using the adapter

    I’ve owned this kayak for a few weeks and have taken it out several times. I’ve used it at several beach’s/bays (salt water) in Southern California. It’s light weight, takes only minutes to setup (w/electric pump), and also dries quickly. I’m 5’11, 225 lbs and I’ve never felt like it was going to tip over or sink. The kayak feels solid and offers plenty of room with the open design. The seat is comfortable. Tracking is okay, not the best. The boat does sway quite a bit in the front for the first few paddles, but after several paddles the tracking greatly improves.

    We bought two of these Duh-Shoots inflatable kayaks for recreational use. Very sturdy and seat is comfortable to sit and paddle for hours at a time. The backpack that comes with the boat is a plus for storage a toting. Downside is they don’t include a pump with purchase. I’m 6’4″ and my wife is 5’8″ and we both found them extremely stable and comfortable. The footrest is comfortable for both of us. We own hard body kayaks as well and got these due to the portability of them. We travel full time and took them to Baja, Mexico with us last November which is where the pictures posted were taken on the Sea of Cortez near La Paz, Mexico. Did you notice they only weigh 19lbs.?! That’s incredible! They air up in about 4-5 minutes. Easily moves through the water but they don’t track super straight until after you get going. We have also taken them down the Flathead River at Glacier NP and they withstood the rough waters well. We had to stop and dump water out several times due to the severity of water drops etc. but we didn’t tump once! Handles and storage compartments are handy.

    I got this kayak as a slightly bigger upgrade to my Aquaglide Chinook 90. And it is that upgrade. I was a little nervous about stability because of the different kind of floor, but it’s actually very stable. I just took it on a quick 3 mile paddle today, with a dock put in and take out, and it was great.

  6. Daniel

    Kayak has gorgeous colors. We were searching for kayak quite some, but this one exceeded our expectations. It’s easy and quick to inflate/deflate. Comes with a nice bag. Is light and easy to carry.
    We are planning to buy a second one, so all 4 of us can have fun together.

  7. Choupimpim

    I have several other high end inflatables, more expensive than this one. I got this for a small, quick setup, but mostly for lightweight.

    It handles well, is stable and I can handle it super easily by myself. Great quality, all the d-rings, tie downs, and other whistles and bells that you would expect from Aquaglide. I am extremely pleased. I think several of my other paddling group members might end up with one of these.

  8. Evans

    My Kayak came with imperfections that I’m concerned will turn into problems later. I’m not sure if anyone else had the same experience UT if you did, please let me know what was the result overtime.

  9. Peter

    I am a 62 year old woman, I really like that I can carry my kayak in the bag myself, inflate and carry to the water. It’s very comfortable and easy to paddle. Has storage area for my dry bag etc. It is very good quality rubber, thick and substantial. It deflates very fast and folds up easily and goes back in carrying bag. I had a hard shell kayak that I couldn’t do on my own. This is perfect!

    Seems really well made. Not a lot of instructions so was able to find some online videos that helped!
