Future Beach Sit-On-Top Kayak Review

Future Beach Sit-On-Top Kayak Review

When you look at the price of the Future Beach Sit-On-Top Kayak, you get the sense that you are not necessarily buying the best in the market. Being conscious of this is important as it allows you to look at the product in a more realistic manner. As we often say, you get what you pay for. This SOT kayak is suitable for someone who is looking for a simple product that will do the job.

Even though Future Beach Sit-On-Top Kayak is designed to be a tandem kayak, it has a center seat that will allow you to paddle on your own with an additional center seat. Every one of these kayaks comes with a multi-channel hull, which is meant to ensure high performance.

This kayak is roto-molded to allow you to maneuver easily and also for enhanced speed. You do not have to worry about water flooding the cockpit as the kayak is self-bailing.

Features

The manufacturers of this kayak call it the best in the category; of course they would. We looked at some features in order to test this assertion for ourselves and some of the features, which impressed us, include some of the following.

  • The kayak is equipped with a hull with several channels
  • Equipped with paddle tie downs and carry handles mounted on the sides
  • Designed to maneuver easily and move fast
  • Equipped with a center seat for solo kayaking
  • Cup holders are molded in
  • Equipped with a huge stern well
  • Comes with built-in drain plugs

Pros

  • For a kayak of this price, we believe that it tracks and handles well in the water
  • Children are able to jump in and out of the kayak easily
  • The carry handles mounted on the sides enable you to carry the kayak easily without any need to drag it on the floor as this could end up damaging the hull and creating problems you do not want to have
  • The integrated drain plugs ensure that you do not get socked when paddling in rough waters

Cons

  • The rings keeping the seat in place are not strong enough since they are plastic, you may want to get yourself metal ones that are more durable

Summary

If there is one thing that makes the Future Beach Sit On Top Kayak a great product that gives you value for your money, it could easily be its roto-mold design which is coupled with a multi-channel hull. This allows the kayak to maneuver easily while also traveling faster. The self-bailing cockpit ensures that if you are paddling in rough waters you do not end up sitting inside a pool of water.

Of course, as a kayak that comes at this price, you can expect it to have a few places that leave a lot to be desired. One of the most apparent ones in the particular kayak is the rings that hold the seat. They are made from plastic, which makes them break easily. This can be mitigated by substituting them with ones made from metal.

Comparison

We took some time to check out what the other products in the same class as the Future Beach Sit On Top Kayak look like and we saw the Sun Dolphin Journey 10-Foot Sit-on-top Fishing Kayak. This is a great kayak for someone who loves fishing.

It would also be a great little boat for someone who is still learning the whole business of kayaking as it is easy to both enter and get out of. Also, like all good kayaks, it has some extra storage room to keep your stuff dry.

If you love the brightly colored stuff, you will be attracted to the Emotion 90244 Spitfire Sit-On-Top 8 Foot Kayak. This kayak is manufactured to be strong using High-Density Polyethylene. The manufacturers of this kayak promise that they made this product with the aim of ensuring performance, stability, and affordability.

Verdict

If you want our opinion, on whether you should buy the Future Beach Sit-On-Top Kayak or not, we will tell you that you should as long as you understand that a product coming at this price will not be the best the market has. If you have teenagers who would like to start learning how to kayak, this will be your best bet.

This little boat is designed to be stable while also being able to glide fast in the water. Carrying it around is a breeze with the built in handles, which are mounted, on both sides. We will recommend it more for tandem paddling even though the center seat will allow you to go solo paddling.
