Emotion Spitfire Kayak Review

Looking for a great, entry-level kayak with very good reviews from owners? The Emotion Spitfire Kayak is a great choice for kids, beginners, or anyone looking for a fun kayak for use in the surf or on a lake.

Offering exceptional stability, tracking, and speed in a 8 foot package, the Emotion Spitfire Kayak features a semi-flat shallow V hull giving it unmatched performance in this class. Has nice rocker and even keel that allows it to track straight when paddling.

Comfortable and spacious for a small boat, It's well designed foot braces allow for plenty of legroom that allow for extra energy while paddling and the seat of the Emotion Spitfire is designed for long-use and comfort. It also includes a pair carrying handles on each end of the kayak for easy transport.

Another great feature of the Spitfire is the large rear storage area perfect for gear, coolers, a fishing box, picnic basket, or any other equipement you would like to carry on the boat.

Built to last, the Spitfire is constructed out of a specially compounded polyethylene plastic that is both UV resistant and easy to repair.  Comes with a 3-year warranty on the hull.

Positive Customer Reviews

This is a great kayak for the first-timer.  I needed something small that would fit in the back of my small SUV. This fit the bill and works great. I've been out on the lake with it over 10 times now with nothing but trouble-free fun. I recommend.

For the price, there is not a better kayak on the market. Extremely well made and stable on the water. Emotion kayaks are great and the spitfire doesn't disappoint.
-- R.T.

I use this kayak constantly on the lake and we had a blast with them at the beach this summer also. They're difficult to ride in the surf, but what kayak isn't, and it was a ton of fun.

This is best for kids and beginners. Doesn't offer the tracking of similarly prices yaks.
