santa cruz kayaks, raptor

I love thiis boat!!! this yak paddles effortlessly through the water. It turns on a dime. I am a 6 ft 185 lb guy and fit very comfortably with all the gear I bring. Mainly I fish for big catfish and gar, but also fish for rays,reds,jacks and shark at the coast. Standing to sight cast is no problem at all. I throw a 7 ft cast net with no concern of tipping. The raptor has tons of room inside for gear etc. this is truly a world class yak and couldnt think of a boat I would rather have. if you fish from a yak, do yourself a favor an paddle a raptor.
