The Rising Star is a small kayak intended for kids or small adults. It is proportioned like an adult kayak to give kids the feel and responsiveness of an adult kayak in a kid's size. This kayak is not an extra wide, stable kayak which limits a kids ability to learn the skills which an adult can enjoy such as leaning, bracing and Eskimo rolling. Its 20 inch width makes this an easily paddled kayak to give its captain the fun of speed. My 4-1/2 year old son paddled across about a quarter mile of long Island sound to "Dragon Island" and back without assistance in his Rising Star this summer.
Beam: 1 ft. 8 in.
