When I offer my opinion about NC Kayaks I'm well aware that there will be different opinions, but I feel like I would be remiss if I failed to at least bring these super boats to the attention of those who are looking. They don't advertise a lot and depend almost exclusively on word-of-mouth.
I certainly don't have a problem with other people's opinions and in fact I appreciate them. I wish someone had told me about these boats when I first got into kayaking. I do realize though that it generally takes a while before a new paddler can evaluate all the traits of a given boat. I would even say that a very experienced kayaker would need a good deal of time in a boat to properly assess it. From my own experience, my first impression of the NCs--other than their remarkable good looks was that the handling was more difficult than I expected and I even questioned their speed. I was wrong on both counts. I will give this warning: If you are one who has multiple boats, an NC will cause your other boats to spend a lot of time collecting dust.
One of the reasons I offer the link is because they have sales from time to time and the only way you can find out about it is to go to their website. I do it with the best of intentions; only because I know that for anyone looking for a great boat at a great price, it would be at least worth a look. I have no financial interest in Novus Composites whatsoever. All I can say is that they are an all American company and deserve our business.
