Is this a kayak or a stand-up paddleboard? The short answer: Yes.

If your objective is to have a fun, stable platform for paddling, does it really matter what you call it? That's what WE thought. The Perception Hi Life is equipped to fill both rolls with equal poise. It's perfect for when you can't decide whether to get a kayak or an SUP, or for those who like to change their minds about what they want to do on the way to the ocean, lake or river.

If finding storage space for both a kayak and an SUP is difficult, this hybrid cuts that problem in half. Although at 11 feet long and 34 inches wide, you'll still need somewhere to stash it when you aren't on the water (which should be twice as long given its versatility). The Hi Life has the stability and smooth tracking needed to inspire confident paddling in a variety of conditions so beginning and intermediate paddlers will enjoy getting out on the water.
