Product Description

Compact and ultra-lightweight, the Venus 10 sit-on-top recreational kayak is designed specifically for women paddlers with a smaller build. The kayak is made of medium-density polyethylene, a virtually indestructible material that's somewhat flexible (so it doesn't crack), but also maintains its stiffness thanks to Ocean Kayak's compound curves. The materials are complemented by a California-form tri-hull design, which includes a long center keel area that encourages boats to track straight when paddling and coasting. The result? A kayak that steers well and is easy to control on the waves regardless of whether you're just starting out or are an experienced paddler. The kayak's unique sit-on-top design, meanwhile, allows you to enter and exit the kayak easily from the shore, dock, or water. In a sit-on-top kayak, you can safely enjoy all the pleasures of kayaking without having to learn difficult self-rescue maneuvers. The kayak's most notable feature, is its female-specific design. The women-friendly features include a low-deck profile, a seat well built to accommodate a woman's center of gravity, and a car-topping handle system that makes it easy for men and women of any size to load and unload the kayak into a car rack. Other details include a tank well with bungee cords for easy gear storage; molded-in foot wells that provide a comfortable foot position for just about any paddler; and self-bailing drain holes in the cockpit that allows water that enters the kayak to immediately flow back out. Ocean Kayak donates one percent of all Venus 10 gross sales to the Breast Cancer Fund. Specifications: * Max Capacity: 160-175 pounds * Length: 9 Feet 10 inches * Width: 28 inches * Seat Width: 19 inches * Weight: 34 pounds

The Venus 10 is proving to be a great kayak for me. I have only had it out twice, but it is surprisingly stable. I had tried to learn to get off and on it in my pool, and it was not easy for me. Should it do a 180, I have rigged a rope with handle to help me right it. No way could I do so by 'grabbing hold of the scuppers'. I couldn't even get close!! But with the rope it is easy. The kayak is so stable I may end up only having to get on and off it when I stop to go snorkeling. Sit on tops are much easier to do so than those you sit in side.
I have been told that I should have gotten a fancier one that would handle better. Mine is $600.00, the one my local kayak shop tried to sell me is $1,900.00 --and mine handles well for me. I can see that someone that wanted to challenge the elements might want to look into a kayak with more features, rudder, etc. I don't foresee needing them at this time.
In short, the kayak is light weight so I can handle it by myself and it fun to use! And easy to put on and off my car so I can take it where ever I go.

Color Name: Yellow Verified Purchase
I finally got to try out this Ocean Kayak Venus 10 today on our lake. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it handled. Because of it's short length, I assumed it would be a problem to travel in a straight line, but it tracks very well! I aimed for the opposite side of the bay and I was there very quickly.

I already own a 17 foot sea kayak with a cockpit, but it hurts my back to sit in it for too long. With the Ocean Kayak Venus 10, you're not tightly locked into a cockpit and you can move around. This boat is very stable! I even put my Sheltie into the boat with me and even though she wanted to lean over the edge and drink out of the lake, this boat did not feel tippy. I bought an Ocean Kayak Comfort Plus seat to put in this kayak and wow, was it comfortable!

Next I slid out of this kayak and into the lake. It was very easy to re-enter the kayak from the water. And another nice thing, it's reasonably light at 34 lbs. I was able to load it onto my Subaru Forester with rear loading kayak cradles all by myself.

This is just a fun little boat! Put on your swimming suit because you're going to get wet, which is exactly what I wanted to do on this 85 degree summer day.
