Sit on kayaks are perceived as being just beach toys, in some circles, with no performance attributes whatsoever. There are designs out there, though, that buck this trend and Perception’s 5-0 is one such boat.
Bridging the gap between sit on kayak and wave ski the Perception 5-0 is perfect for paddlers looking to take those first tentative steps in the surf but still has enough throw about performance making it suitable for advanced riders.
I managed to get hold of a Perception 5-0 recently and take it for spin in some small dribblers. While not being the biggest of waves I still got a good idea of what the Perception 5-0 is all about. Check out the write up on the sitons.com site.
