The vibe kayaks skipjack 120t is a great boat for paddlers who want to experience the beauty of ocean waters or calm rivers and lakes. It is very stable and can accommodate two people in tandem mode, although it can also be paddled solo from the center seat. It has a number of useful features, including an adjustable seat and multiple foot wells. However, it does not come with knee or thigh pads, which some paddlers may find uncomfortable.
The skipjack kayak has ample storage space for a small boat and comes with two watertight hatches in front of each seat. There is also a large day well in the back of the kayak that can be used for larger items like a cooler. A stern mounted bungee cord system is also included. Additionally, there are several mounting points that allow paddlers to customize the kayak with a wide range of accessories from Vibe Kayaks, Scotty, RAM and Railblaza.
At just 9 feet long, the skipjack kayak is fairly maneuverable despite its relatively short keel. It is a great choice for beginners or for those who do not have the storage space or budget for a longer kayak. It can be easily maneuvered in rough conditions and is easy to transport and carry from the car to the water. Its lighter weight and shorter length also make it easier to store. It is recommended to check the kayak’s load capacity before going on a trip with a full amount of gear.
