Initial W500 Kayak Review, Eric Overdijk, Norway

So I went with my girlfriend and the W500 to the big river nearby and we tried the boat. Paddling the boat was like walking on the water!!! It was very easy to use the boat, like a child's play. The boat responded very nicely to the waves in the middle of the river, it was very easy to take the boat where I wanted it, to keep it short, I am very enthusiastic about it, and I feel like using it a lot. It was fun to stand and feel safe in a kayak.

Today was the big day – Nice weather, quite a lot of wind, but not too much.

Afterwards we got a lot of attention of some guys who were curious about the W500. Two of the guys were on a little field trip for the National Tourist Board. They did not have time to try the W500 now, but they got my business card and they would check my website. I think that you get a lot of attention, in general, with a boat of this special design.
I am impressed, you really made something very nice Yoav.

Eric
