On top of the kayak are molded seating area and molded footholds with varying distances from the seat to accommodate different heights of rider. The HDPE plastic hull will not fade, crack, or peel due to exposure to the sunlight providing the kayak with a long life of use.

Fun kayaking
Okay, so I don't own this in the red color. But I own it in a different color and it is so much fun I needed to write a review. They are very light and so much fun for kids. I would say you are probably good until about the age of 12. My oldest is 12 and weighs about 90 pounds-he is kind of small for his age so he will be able to use it for another year or two. Many of his friends are too big though. I have a five-year-old that loves it. I was a little worried that five years old might be too young, boy was I wrong. The neighbors always ask to borrow it as well. I don't think they made the red color when I bought mine or I would have been tempted to get the red. They are good looking and we can fit several of them in the back of our SUV
