Yep, she's pretty nice. Weighs about 10lbs less than a comparable fiberglass boat or 20lbs less than a plastic boat.

Don't worry, I don't plan on taking up kayak surfing unless by necessity. It's funny though, she's got a pretty flat bottom and a hard chine so really wants to surf. 17' of boat will catch almost anything.

If anyone's interested in building such a craft, look up Pygmy sea kayaks out of Port Townsend. I have zero craft-skill and pulled it off.
