Tried and true the first Ocean Kayak Scrambler was launched over twenty years ago. Several things have changed during that time but the design of our stable and efficient Tri-Form Hull has stayed the same. The hull responds well in ocean swells and surf. It also tracks well on flat water making it an excellent choice for the paddler who wants to do everything from kayak surfing to fishing to a casual day paddle. Over twenty years of proven ability, the Scrambler 11 continues to be the kayak of choice for paddlers wanting versatility combined with fun. Made in the USA of durable roto-molded polyethylene plastic. WEIGHT: 47 lbs. MAX CAPACITY: 300-350 lbs. LENGTH: 11' 6.5" WIDTH 29.5".

The included seat is a good one. I do have a fairly sensitive backside and I don't start experiencing discomfort until 4 or 5 hours into a float. I've ordered some gel pads that should help with that. I also recommend that you get two medium scupper stoppers for the holes beneath the seat. I installed those before the first trip and it saved me from sitting in an inch of water the whole trip. I plan to do some paddling this fall as well, so I'll be ordering more for the footwell scupper holes. As they are, they let in enough water that your feet stay exposed to water the whole time you're floating. In the summer that's not such a bad thing. One note on the scupper holes, they let water out as well as in, so plugging them could lead to having to manually dump water if you should get some over the bow. Just keep that in mind.
Others have mentioned that the secure storage area just in front of the seat isn't waterproof and that's my experience as well. It is secure, so it's good for keys and other small items, but at the end of a trip it's normally got some water in it. Keep that in mind when stowing items there.
Altogether though it's a terrific boat that came at a fair price and I give it 5 stars. I think you'd encounter similar "issues" with any kayak as they were never meant to be perfectly secure and dry modes of water transportation. They are meant to be fun, and this one definitely is. Highly recommended.
I think it tracks pretty well. If it weren't clear, this does not come with paddles. The boat itself is very well built and the hull is super thick and rigid. It's not like those cheap $200 ones that you can push in with one hand. The storage space is amazing. The cam lock hatch is good for keeping keys and Chapstick in, but it leaks pretty well, so I wouldn't trust a phone or anything in there.
It does make a bit of noise when it hits the ripples in choppier waters. It doesn't bother me, but I could see it being annoying to some people. Also, this thing is not fast. With constant paddling in relatively low winds/currents, I average about 2.8 mph.
Overall, this is a great kayak. Especially if want something to take camping. Also, it's American made. You've got to love that!
The Ocean Kayak Scrambler provides a perfect sized seat and perfect sized leg room for me at around 180 lbs and 5'9". The Scrambler also is not too heavy for me to easily handle picking it up out of the water and car-topping it myself. The sit-on-top design is perfect for taking on waves in the surf and draining directly through the scupper holes. The hull design, although not a sleek/fast design is perfect for cutting through the ocean waves and swells on the bay. The Scrambler tracks fairly nicely. If you're a novice looking at the Scrambler, I can tell you that everyone I've ever taken out for the first time almost instantly / intuitively knew how to handle the Scrambler. It's very easy to use for first time paddlers.
The hull design makes the Scrambler especially stable. Of all the kayaks I've used this has got to be the most stable hull design I've ever encountered. I was almost going to say (for the sake of beginners) I have never even accidentally flipped the Scrambler (although I have frequently flipped it intentionally to illustrate the stability and re-entry procedures to newcomers. However, thinking back over the years I have been wiped out by a couple waves crashing broadside into my Scrambler (all part of the fun).
I totally abuse my Scramblers dragging them over sand and pebbles, leaving them out on my kayak racks 24/7 all year around exposing them to year 'round weather and the sun. They are holding up like "champs" to the UV exposure without any signs of becoming brittle and cracking. They do fade a bit when mistreated the way mine are, however, it does not affect their performance in any way. I'm half expecting that after leaving my oldest one out year 'round for many years that it will crack one of these days, but it hasn't after around twelve years in the sun. If my oldest Scrambler ever gave in to UV exposure and cracks, I would immediately buy another of the exact same kayak.
Love these kayaks - for my application and my size these are perfect. Have gotten many years of service out of them despite totally abusing them with UV exposure. Great for beginners and experienced kayakers and obviously, the sit-on-top design is perfect for attacking the surf.
