Default Santa Cruz Kayaks

Anyone ever heard of this and fished out of them around here? I saw one today on the beach and the thing looked crazy. It looked fast and stable.

At about 4:05 + into the video, is that damage to the hull or just a bad mold?
I agree they look pretty cool and stable but at the present they are pretty "plain Jane"
AT 60 pounds I don't think the hull could be very thick which is why I asked about the "damage"

I think its the color. The one I saw in person had two different colors in the mold for an almost "camo" like appearance.

The hull design is very unique but you are right, they are very plain jane which is might be why they weigh so little. Also they are VERY narrow in the front cutting down on weight. The hatches could probably be more secure with a more robust system to keep them in place, loosing a hatch in the surf can be bad news. I like how they have the molded in area for an attwood pump which can be found at walmart for cheap. It would be very easy to make a DIY bait tank.

The guy I saw with it said its faster and tracks better then any other fishing SOT.

Cool concept for sure, wish I had taken the guys offer to let me paddle it around but I was a few beers deep and didnt want to embarrass my self haha.

Hahaha! I should've said faster than most other fishing yaks. I'm sure there is faster but not many. The yak rocks I also have the sit inside but just got the sot and am loving trying it out. I love pcola and hope to be back at least once a year. If anyone finds themselvs around dallas area pm and lets go yak fishing.
