Innova Sunny Inflatable Kayak - The Sunny Inflatable Kayak by Innova is rock-solid, tough, fast and will be most enjoyed for recreational touring & paddling fun. Based on the design of the successful Helios, the Sunny is slightly longer and can be paddled as a single or double, with enough space left over for a kid or dog. Somewhat more stable than the Helios, the open cockpit Sunny is a capable and versatile kayak designed for comfort and easy maneuvering. The Sunny packs compactly in its own drybag-backpack and can be set up in less than 10 minutes, no really we mean it. Hand-crafted with a heavy duty rubber coated 1,200-denier Nitrylon, it will deliver years of paddling fun for a family of adventurers. The Sunny can easily be changed into a single kayak for solo paddlers, because the boat is double-ended, the forward seat can be turned around and the tracking fin, which is included, can be swapped to the other end to allow a solo paddler to sit in the middle of the boat and be balanced in a cross wind. When the Sunny was first presented, Sea Kayaker Magazine reviewed it, and clocked a top speed of over 5 mph. Whether you are in to paddling your favorite quiet river or a hidden mountain lake, make sure you bring along your Sunny Inflatable Kayak by Innova.

This is the second or third time I am writing a review for this boat for Amazon. I don't know why they keep asking me! I have heard from You Tube that the Innova Sunny is not made for the open ocean. I contest this and anyway the ocean is about the only decent place one can go to with this kind of boat around here, however, few inflatable kayakers are going to go to the extent I have done, namely, to customize the seat/backrest combination and to spend a lot of money for it. This means that as a kayaker I am better prepared to be knocked around by turbulence than the designers of this boat had intended.
I think this boat would be still better if the spray skirts were inflatable so as to further rigidify the boat from the bow and stern and were a little longer. Both the Tramper S & Tramper SL canoe/kayaks are made this way. As it stands the lateral air chambers flex to the sides outwards or inwards a little more than they would otherwise but this boat is supposed to have one end equal to the other which does not make sense as I have already written above in different words.
When inflated to specs, the boat is fast and tracks very straight. I paddled it in 15-20 MPH winds and the boat had no trouble going up wind. To me, it seems to track and go as fast as other rigid sit on tops that I've paddled. I have no problems averaging 3.5 MPH in this kayak. Just for fun, I tested it on a dead sprint and it made 5.6 MPH top speed on my Garmin GPS. These tests were performed with one paddler. It also continues to "coast" for quite a bit when you stop paddling. Very efficient hull.
The nice thing about this boat is that it is fairly light. I can easily pick it up (fully inflated) with one hand and carry stuff in my other hand on the way to the launch. No need for multiple trips when its time to go.
The boat comes with a nice dry bag back pack. The bag is a tight fit so if you are planning to put the boat back in the bag you will have to pay close attention to folding the boat just right. I needed a second person to help get the boat back in the bag after folding it up. Personally, I would only use the dry bag backpack to pack the boat into some remote location. Otherwise, the boat will likely go into a tub when done. One other note, if you are paddling in windy conditions, be sure to connect a line between you and the boat if you are going to go into the water. Otherwise you may find yourself stranded when the boat blows downwind faster than even Michael Phelps can swim.
This was a fantastic purchase. We plan to take it with us on trips to estuaries, local lakes as well as Hawaii and wherever else there are paddling opportunities. It will be in my family for a long time to come.
Setup and pack up is quick and easy. They kayak easily rolls up and fits back in the backpack. The material is very thick and durable. Tracking is excellent due to fin and low profile in water -paddling in a 60km offshore wind on a small lake this boat tracked so much better than a friend's canoe which was forced to return to shore.
Four piece carbon fiber paddles make hiking a lot easier with the kayak. Make sure to treat the boat with the UV Tech spray to protect from UV rays. In cooler conditions wear rain gear as your legs will get wet from paddling.
This boat is best suited for smaller inland lakes and rivers. It's not suited for rivers with submerged rocks or other obstacles as you will snag the fin and potentially damage the area the fin attaches to.
