    Great kayak

    Customer review by Dude

    This kayak is great very enjoyable to use lightweight and easy to transport. I read a lot of reviews before buying. I am 63years old 5' 11' 190lb and this kayak fits me fine with plenty of room from the end of my feet to the bow (about 14") so I have room to stow gear up there. Just to let you know I have not been in a kayak since I was 14 or 15 years old. At 1st it felt a little tippy(sort of like riding a bike for the 1st time) but after awhile I got my balance back again and I have no problem with the kayak. Moves great turn's nice I feel safe in it. I bought it for exercise and to take photographs from. I have taken it out 3 times logged about 6 hours so far. I did order it from walmart.com ship to store because I wanted ornge store only stocked blue. No problem plus it's shipped in a bag so I got a nice cover for it. one last thing walmart.com sells all kinds of add on's for the kayaks so I can upgrade for very little as needed .

    I've had this Kayak for a few months now, and I have already taken it out around 6 or 7 times on various bodies of water. I'm 5'11" and around 180 lbs. It's the perfect budget Kayak! Get it while it's cheap! I have taken it out on small lakes, a big lake, a couple of smaller creeks and even the Ohio River. While I wouldn't recommend this for heavier rapids at all, it is a nice, easy to maneuver kayak. I'll list out the pros and cons, and then a bit more on my kayak specifically. Pros: - Easy maneuverability (it will turn on a dime!) - Very lightweight - Small enough to fit on top of a small car (I use ratchet straps, paracord tiedowns (for front and back) and pool noodles for it to rest on and it works like a charm with zero slipping, even at 80+ mph). - Perfect starter kayak - Cheap! Cons: - Being cheap, it doesn't come with a lot, so you will need to get creative if you want to add anything - It can be very wobbly at first. It does not come with foot pegs, so you may want to consider adding some. I can understand some of the complaints regarding instability. However, once you get used to placing your feet in the right place, you're just fine. - The default seating with hurt your butt in no time. If you're going to add anything first, add a seating pad! Otherwise, your rear end will start hurting pretty quickly! I have also made modifications to mine, instead of spending hundreds of dollars more on a kayak with such additions. I wanted an easy, affordable way to make an on-the-fly fishing kayak if I needed one. As you can see in the picture below, I added a seat cushion (a must!), cleats for a homemade anchor, paddle clips for the side (the paddle rest grooves that are already on the kayak aren't all that great. Easy to knock the paddle off.), storage compartment for the back, fishing pole holder and a raised solar garden spotlight mounted on top of a short pvc pipe for night time adventures.

    I am 70 years young and this is my first kayak. The first time I took it out, it took me about 5 minutes to get the swing of paddling (something I had never done before) and I was off. Two hours later I had to come in off the water to get home in time to start dinner, or I would have stayed longer. I loved it. It was a little harder to get out of than to get into, but at my age after sitting in my chair for two hours watching TV, it is sometimes hard to get out of, LOL. I absolutely love it. I can stick it into my car truck, bungee it down and take it to the lake. It only weights 28 pounds, so it is light enough for me to carry and load and unload by myself. That is important to me. I have always been independent and I don't want to stop now. I'm not ready to be a little old lady; maybe when I'm 90. The only problem that I have with it, is that I didn't buy one years ago :) Also I have seen them for as high as $369 . . . so I say shop Walmart for the best prices. Happy Kayaking!

    Bought little Aruba 8 in early May! Had a chance to use it on a big lake. It ran so straight and true. I never had a problem with purchase, and operation of this little cutie of a kayak. I went two miles for first try this spring. Plan on taking it out for longer trips. I love the paddle holders storage options and the light blue color. I never fussed about no footrests my feet keep dancing around anyway. I sold my 10 footer today and will keep the lighter sun dolphin. This Aruba also turns on a dime. Walmart has the nicest sales people. Please do not have it shipped! Go store shopping and get it off the rack. Check it out for your kids and older adults. Happy summer!

    Aruba Pros and Cons

    Bought two, for wife and myself. Pros- cost, kayak and paddle came with it for less than $150 in store cost. Light weight ( could carry both to water at same time by my self) Compact ( fit both in side my Trail Blazer EXT and I believed both would fit on most mid sized cars with proper tie downs.) Has dry storage (though some larger phones may not fit I was able to stow cell phone, wallet, keys and sun screen lotion with no problem) Bunge top storage on back ( have not used but nice add on, other similar priced kayaks did not have dry storage or bunge tie down) though a little tippy we found them easy to use. My wife is a complete novice and it was her first time in a solo kayak and she managed with ease and loves hers. Cons- Does not track well and is affected by the wind due to size. No true drain plug ( has plug but it is just a rubber stopper and is not easy to put back in when removed. Says up to 260 lbs capacity but at close to 200 my self I would not recommend for some one over 6ft tall and 220 lbs Summary - if your an advanced kayaker this is not for you ( but why the heck would an advanced kayaker be buying this anyway). If your out to get on the water and just cruise and enjoy nature the cons are negligible. Good quality, great price.
