Price, Quality, Customer Service EXCELLENT!
In looking for a quality kayak to enjoy the local rivers and lakes, this manufacturer was highly recommended for quality, pricing, package (which included oars), weight and durability. Their Customer Service was highlighted as among the very best anywhere. So we ordered 2, one for each of us. Anticipated arrival date to our store for pick up was almost a full week earlier than projected. Got them home, unwrapped them from their shipping plastic and everything was there except a right side thigh pad on one kayak. Took them out for a river run Sunday and found them easy to manage in transport, carrying, launching and recovery. Agility and true line of travel were commensurate with the skills of the person using the kayak. Comfortable with adjustable seat and foot pegs. Drain plug easy to use and kayak light enough to tilt upright for drainage even with water in the craft from rapids of cast off from using the paddles. Fun experience and extremely satisfied with products. Per the card that comes with the kayaks, contacted manufacturer directly about the missing thigh pad. Sunday evening sent them the purchase information and a picture and explained what was missing. First thing Monday morning we had a email response from the manufacturer not only as an apology for the missing pad slipping through quality control, but that a pad was being sent out which is self adhesive. When you have a great product at a great price and manufacturer customer service like that, you just have to take time to do a review of your own experience.
I bought this for lake camping trips. It was a terrific addition to our weekends. I am a big guy (6'3" 260lbs) and it supported me with no problems.
Finally after all these years of wanting a kayak they have one I could afford. Works great, I even sit my 7 year old son in it with me which totals about 200lbs between the two of us. Great kayak for just paddling around the lake.
The ARUBA 10 is a bargain. As others have mentioned, an added seat cushion is a must. The kayak is very stable, tracks reasonably well, and is comfortable. Don't expect the seal on the storage compartment to keep the water out. It probably won't. We paddled about 3 miles yesterday and except for the cheap paddles the Aruba did very well.
Good and affordable!
So far I haven't had any problems with it. I've only use it 3 times and it has done to job. You can tell is not a highend kayak. That being said, this is not like a pro kayak, just for beginners. But I don't need anything fancy. Just something to keep me afloat. So this is perfect and affordable for that. I'm very happy with it.
