The Wilderness Systems Tarpon 100 Sit-On-Top Kayak goes along whether you're paddling along the shore to look at wildlife, tracking across mirrored lakes, or having a bit of fun in small surf. Front, back, and side grab handles make it easy to tote this boat from the car to the water or over rocky portages, especially when you can bribe your buddy to help schlep. Hop aboard the luxurious seating, grab your tackle or an extra 6-pack (or both), and paddle anywhere your arms will take you. The multi-chined hull provides initial and secondary stability for beginners, and seasoned riders will appreciate the undiluted agility of this spunky hybrid. The soft Phase 3 AirPro seat turns a grueling, all-day paddlefest into a walk (or paddle) in the park. Further customize the fit using the Keepers foot brace system. Labor Day on the lake or a weeklong fishing trip in Alaska, the Tarpon opens wide to swallow your gear. Bow and midship hatches stay protected from the spray with Orbix hatch covers. Keep your sunscreen and extra bag of snacks within reach in the midship gear storage pockets. Put your dry bags in the cavernous stern tankwell, knowing the adjustable bungee system will keep them in place if you bite it on a bit of rough water or the fish take you for a bit of a ride.
