The Best Kayak

I love this kayak so much. Tracks way better than my other kayaks, the seat is super comfy, very stable, and I love the fact that you can use it with either one or two people. Plus its super stylish! I've used it with both my kiddos, I've used it with another adult - both worked great. Can't say enough great things about it. I love it so much that I bought another Vibe single kayak for when its just me :)

Great Tandem

Recently purchased the Yellowfin T130. It was delivered promptly. Assembly was very easy. I am using it in tidal creeks in South Carolina. It is a very adaptable kayak. It is easy to transform from a tandem with lots of room ( me, my wife and the dog ) to a great single kayak for a day of fishing. It is a very stable platform and tracks well. I also like the accessory rails. I highly recommend this kayak.

Perfect River Kayak

I've had the 130T for two years now - used primarily on "floating" rivers. It's PERFECT for spending the day on the water - pulling up on a rock beach, taking the chairs out and eating lunch. The storage wells are enough to keep all of our supplies, and the back is perfect for our YETI cooler. It is s easy to lift up and transport on the roof rack of my SUV. The longest trip I've taken was about 16 miles and we were comfy the entire time. It's stable enough for us to stand if we want, and we've even dived off the side in swimming holes. We regularly get compliments often on the coloring. I love this kayak so much I've just bought the 100 in the same color to make solo trips a little easier. Another user noted they take their little one in it - I also have taken mother/daughter day trips with my 11 year old, and can navigate solo for the both of us with no problem. 10/10 would absolutely buy again.

Totally Happy

My wife and I finally got out kayak and got it on the water for just an amazing day. We had a blast fishing from all sides and both of use were able to stand up and fish it was so stable I couldn't believe it. The only issue was a few of our bugee straps broke but that is a small issue. Completely happy with our purchase!

Awesome Kayak

My wife and I have had our Vibe tandem for over two years now and love it! We take it to the lake together and I run it down the river by myself, oftentimes. The seating is very versatile making it a great solo or tandem option. After a year, I purchased a keel system from Vibe and that greatly reduces any control issues the 14 ft length may cause some paddlers. Customer service from Vibe has always been superb so I have have continued to purchase accessories through them such as upgraded paddles, etc. The craftsmanship has been great and we have had absolutely no issues. Great kayak for the price. And did I mention, it's extremely stable! My wife no longer worries about wakes from boaters when we're on our Yellowfin.
