Thank you guys
I know its not really that fast but when you have only ever kayaked it certainly feels fast. The big plus is my little lad really enjoyed it so it gets him off the internet and into the outdoors! Plus it gave my wife kittens with him stood at the front captain stlye giving the orders (while my other half clung to the back off his life jacket for dear life even though he was well braced and holding tight).
Best money ive spent in a good while and will be encouraging friends to join the madhouse.
