Taking the plunge into the world of kayaking can be intimidating, but luckily the Dagger Zydeco 9. 0 Kayak's there to soothe your inhibitions. It'll ease you into the sport with a highly maneuverable design and confidence inspiring feel. Being the shorter of the two options in the Zydeco line, this 9ft boat is the lighter, easier to carry, and simpler to turn option. Built for flat water, this goat excels on lakes and lazy rivers. A roomy cockpit design allows you to kick-back, relax, and enjoy the float but is still narrow enough as to not compromise the boat's performance. The fully adjustable seat allows you to dial in the perfect fit, and bungee deck rigging at the bow and stern makes bringing all the gear you need for a multi-day paddle possible.
