Ordered this for our camping trips up to the lakes. It's pretty easy to set up, although you will have to pump it up everytime (10 min). It comes with a hand pump, which will give you a workout for sure. Super stable pedal kayak. It fits me, the dog and my husband with no problem at all. The chairs are very comfortable and I have no issues staying on the kayak for hours on end. My only complaint is that there is not hatch on the kayak.
The store is wonderful. However, the promise of replacement springs has NOT been fulfilled as of this date.
Took my new kayak out for its first sail today. Outstanding. Assembly is fairly easy (good instructions). You will need a Phillips head screw driver and wrench for the initial assembly, but no tools after that. The hand pump works well. It only took about 10-12 minutes to fully inflate. I bought the wheel set for the inflatable kayaks and it definitely makes it easier to roll it into the water. The wheels can then be carried on the bow. Operating the drive system is easy and requires little effort. The kayak moves very smoothly and is very quiet. My son and I covered a fairly good distance in a short period of time. Getting the kayak out of the water was also easy using the wheels. It deflated quickly and we let it dry by our car. I would recommend taking a beach towel to aid the drying process. Read the instructions carefully the first time you fold the kayak. It is much easier the second time. Pedaling the kayak was really fun. Hobie builds a great product.
