    I am a former owner of a Prowler 13 and have now been paddling a Ride 135 for approximately 6 weeks. All I can say about the Ride is that it is one sweet kayak. I was worried about the speed difference between the two when I first made the switch, but I was very impressed with the tracking, glide and speed. The features on this yak are incredible. The size of the tankwell lets me take more than enough gear for a day’s outing. The cockpit is roomy and the seat is very comfortable. As to be expected, the stability of this kayak is incredible. I am able to pole the flats, as well as cast and fight fish, all from the standing position. The Ride 135 is an excellent fishing platform and I would highly recommend this kayak to anyone in the market for a new kayak.

    The boat is super. It handles really well with or without the rudder. Since it is wide, the Ride takes a couple of strokes to get going, but then the kayak's glide makes up for the slow start. The Ride is super stable, so I thought it would be super slow. To me the yak does not feel slow at all. It is not close to being as fast as my wife's Pungo 140, but seems fast enough. With rubber golf balls in the scuppers, I had a perfectly dry ride. I agree that the seat bottom needs more padding. After a few hours out I started to get a bit uncomfortable, so I pulled a cushion out of the dry hatch and solved the problem for the rest of the day. The Ride 135 is perfect for fishing. It has a huge capacity and lots of room for coolers, crates, tackle boxes, etc. I like the grooves in the bow to place your rod tip while rigging the line. Another nice touch is the wealth of bungees located in strategic places. Wilderness Systems quality is evident in the fit and finish of this yak. My good friend has two Ride 135s and swears by them. I am glad that I listened to his advice.



    I recently purchased the Ride, but right after buying, took it on a 7-day trip down the Rio Grando Lower Canyons. Paddled it for 84 miles. You could say we're acquainted.

    Very stable platform for standing to sight cast or scout river hazards. Lots of storage space and storage options. Orbix hatches are easy to operate and have a solid closure. Seat back gives good support. Tracks well in flat water and tends to coast once you get it up to speed. Hull material stands up to rocks. Scupper holes are well protected inside the tri-hull design. Shallow drafting.

    Hard to turn. Not the best kayak for a novice in class 2+ water. Not the fastest kayak on the water. Tends to slap and punch through waves rather than ride over top. Seat bottom could use a little more padding. No scupper holes near the seat. Water will collect there.

    Overall, it is a very good boat, but there are trade offs. You give up maneuverability for stability. What sold me is its durability.

    The Ride was our first boat and when and if it ever wears out we are going to buy another one. We have used this boat in most conditions on lakes, rivers and in the ocean and it has never let us down. Anyone can paddle the Ride and we always use it for the "first timers" I don't know what you would have to do to get this boat over but my husband who is 275 stands up in it to get in and out ( bad knees) This is just a nice big comfortable work horse of a boat, not fast but ultra sturdy and safe, if I fished I would paddle the Ride and give my husband my Tarpon 100.



    The Ride is very stable, has tons of space for storage. My husband loved this kayak, while I was not crazy about it. He is 6'3 and I am 5'5, and the Ride was very comfortable for him, but felt clumsy for me. It is extremely stable and rode the rapids very well; he didn't have any trouble navigating around the rocks but I did. Sitting on top and letting your legs hang on the side was absolutely stable. Our boys took it for fishing and said it was great. Plenty of room for a small cooler in the roomy front storage area. Lots of neat features and places to store stuff. We didn't take in any water at all in this kayak, which is the primary reason for the SOT decision. Very sturdy and well built kayak.

    I absolutely love this kayak for one sole purpose, you can stand and sightcast fish on the flats without having to add any flotation devices whatsoever. I like to carry as little as possible with me such as 2 rods a wading belt and an anchor. I just don't like dealing with so much stuff at once and its easier to stand up without losing or getting tangled with anything. Overall a great kayak for saltwater flats fishing and highly recommend it for any purpose. Happy trails!!!
