Fast is definitely fun

I'm 5'10" and 145-150lbs. Really am diggin the way this boat paddles. I've used in all types of water. I find it to have a lot of primary stability (less secondary), great rocker making for easy boofs, and fast. I've been paddling the medium Nirvana for a few seasons now and it is my go-to creeker and is great for an aggressive paddler. The kayak is confidence inspiring, it skips over nasty holes, it sits back down quickly after popping up which helps in maintaining control, and with its edges it carves well. It stick lines easily and goes where you point it. I paddle it with the seat set back one notch and find that it allows the nose to float and then with a more aggressive forward posture it also drives pretty well. I would say generally it is an easy paddle and feels solid when flat and would not be bad for a beginner but maybe a kayak with more secondary stability would better suit newcomers. One minor note would be that the length or tail does make it a bit more prone to tail tapping on shallow boofs and ledges.
