I purchased my first Robson Balboa three years ago, being new to kayaking I wanted a stable craft that handled well, taking advice from the reviews I read at the time I was not disappointed. This little kayak has now been adapted with three rod holders for my fishing trips, extra elastics to stow items on the deck close at hand, I have fitted a Garmin fish finder with the transducer under the seat, It's even got a sail that fastens to the bow to help on long journeys when there's a tail...

I've just bought myself one and I absolutely love it. Its fast, nimble tracks great and is nice and stable too. I would recomend this Kayak to anyone from a begginer to someone looking to upgrade. I bought mine as an upgrade. I know it will cope with anything I want to throw at it without throwing me in easily in the process. Great price too compared to more expensive, inferiour kayaks. Get one you wont regret it. (read more)

The Robson Waikiki Expedition Canoe is my first kayak. I wanted a boat to take on the local sea and estuary, to paddle up a local flat water river and to go on weekend trips on lakes and lochs (read more)

I have had my Waikiki Expedition for a year now, and have paddled in it most weeks.
One of the neat points on the Waikiki is it's ability to cut hrough the water when the river is choppy - a result of it's raised bow design. The similar Dagger Blackwater has a tendancy to give you a bit of a splashing because of it's lower bow design.

Totally agree with spiritos473's review. The Robson Waikiki is my first Kayak. I've trained on other makes and models and can honestly say that the Robson is great, it's so stable, you always feel safe. I bought two of these boats, one for me and one for my 11 yr old son. Both of us find them really easy to paddle. We've had them out in Flat water, tidal estuaries, off the north sea coast and in the surf on the beach at Roker (Sunderland).
The 'Sea Kayak' or at least coastal water qualities... (read more)

In the touring kayak category, there are so many boats to list that I could be here all day. I purchased my Waikiki last year when I was after a large, stable boat that would serve a range of purposes. The reason I chose this boat was because of the huge amounts of positive info I had heard on the craft. I was not disappointed. Having used the Robson on lowland rivers (upto and including grade 1 water), choppy lakes, canals, coastal waters, mild surf and so on, I am just so amazed at the... (read more)
