For those mid-sized to larger paddlers who are looking for a light-weight, Weights for both ABS and Ultralight layups, durable, and comfortable boat that’s versatile, the Storm 17 ticks all the boxes. Whether you’re heading out on a long trip or a short skip across the bay, this kayak is stable, easily packable and very seaworthy.

Primary stability is a reflection of how stable the kayak feels while sitting still on a calm body of water. A high primary stability is perfect for beginners, photographers and fisherman alike.
Secondary stability is the stability felt while edging the boat (leaning the kayak on one side using your hips). A kayak with a poor secondary will require a stronger bracing technique to edge with confidence.
Handling vs Tracking
There is no right or wrong answer here. A kayak that tracks more (more grey) will be easy to keep on a straight course. A loose kayak (more blue) will be easy to turn on a dime and change direction quickly.
