Had the opportunity to try surf kayaking with my Dagger Axiom 8.5 and totally hooked, looking at getting a purpose built surf machine now. Understanding that these boats are totally different animals from WW boats, I would like to ask those who have paddled the Mega Banshee what the fitting is like for a larger paddler at 6 foot 5 at 90kg. What is the opinion on this boat for learning this awesome sport.

You may be better off contacting Mega..Im 5ft 8 ins tall and 13st..perfect for my Banshee..although the specs of the boat say it can take a much bigger paddler..plenty of foot space up front so no problems for the taller paddler!

Thanks for the info, really helpful to get an idea what it's like to own. I have read that this boat is stable and paddles well, would you say it's a good place to start learning on?.

I heard good things about the boat before I bought one, been paddling for years in surfboats and WW..and it did still take time to understand how it worked.. that is coming from the smaller HP surfboats..Its a boat you will grow to like, as its easy to catch waves, Roll and quite forgiving..compared to others out there that are similar in design !..stability isn't a problem with the Banshee..if your mid range of the weight limit..
