The Rising Star

A kayak for kids. The rising star is intended to give kids that feel of a real kayak. It is not so large that a kid has trouble controlling it and its light weight lets a kid have fun. Parental supervision is a must for kids starting out with this boat because like a real kayak is for adults, this kayak is a bit tippy to give kids the feel and control they need for learning the sport of kayaking. Intended for kids up to about 120 lbs.
