Our View

Although this is one of the smallest Kayaks on the market, it is perfect for all beginners and even intermediate paddlers. Made for touring at sea, the Perception Sport Conduit  9.5 has exceptional acceleration and speed for it’s size. The cost of the kayak is also another plus as it comes in at a relatively low price angle compared to other kayaks on the market.

So would we recommend it? In short yes. This kayak is perfect for all beginners out there that are after a relatively small sized kayak to learn the ropes of paddling. If touring is what you are after then this kayak is for you. If however you are an advanced paddler, then perhaps there are other options that may be better suited. But for a beginner this is probably one of the best kayaks you could buy.
