A great all-around sit-on-top for almost any sized paddler, this easy-to-handle sit-on-top has extra storage and respectable speed that both beginners and veterans will enjoy.
The all-terrain vehicle of the waterworld, the ocean-loving, river-adoring, sit-on-top Perception Tribe 11. 5 Kayak loves variety as much as you do. It's beginner-friendly, so everyone can get a taste of the action, with a wide, stable hull and slightly rockered bow that handles waves and maneuvers easily on flats. It sports a foldable, adjustable, and padded seat that adds an extra dose of comfort and paddling power. As the middle child of the Tribe family, the 11. 5 is sleek and fast enough to make longer journeys but plenty nimble to handle tight spots, and has a skid plate for durability and auto-draining scupper holes to keep you from swamping. The dual bow and stern tank wells come equipped with bungees to strap your gear down when you're cruising down the river or crossing the foggy bay, and the molded-in cup-holder keeps your drink from going overboard when the seas start to get foamy. A combination of molded and attached carry handles make moving and car-loading easy as pie, while the Tribe's stackable designs mean you can easily keep your boats out of the way until it's time for the next adventure.
The Tribe 11.5 from Perception offers an extra boost in the surf it's the perfect all-around boat for everyone, including large paddlers.
