We've done lakes and the ocean even with rough winds and waves - no problem. The test was the rapids and it required a lot of skill and power to steer the boat. This was only possible alone and probably tested my limit and the limit of the boat. But I find that very impressive as it seems to be able to handle it all. We are very happy with it!

Tried 308X on class I-II Verde River section as a two seater, 6 hours run. Two men (60y+), first time in same boat on narrow river with partial strainers and sweepers, rocky bars, rapids, long "quiet" sections for recovery (not used:). Minimal cargo load: pump/repair bad, dry change bag, some snack.

1. Started with open self-bailing drains. Without any "splashing" got 2-3 inches of water ABOVE THE FLOOR. Kayak control was still good, but clearly affected by "loose fluid mass" and deeper seating in water. Got stuck on shallow rocks once or twice, both cases resolved without swims.

2. For the second half of the trip drainages were closed. Boat became lighter, more responsive. Few occasional splashes did not add a lot of water.

3. In one of my trips solo (class III) never had water above the floor, even with full load for camping and serious waves (face wash), self-bailing was almost instant. Never bothered by water build-up.

Conclusion: for serious runs - solo only. For recreational duo - close the drains.

Great kayak. Always wanted an inflatable. Worth the money. Very durable and works great for me and my wife.

Taking it on a 6 month cross country trip this summer and hope to get much use out of it.

The con: gauge on the SUP4 pump does not work so I have to guess at the pressure

Customer service has been excellent from the time I called and ordered my 380x, received it and beyond. The kayak is sturdy, stable, responsive on the water and good looking. I am also impressed with how quickly it inflates with the electric pump as well as fast it totally deflates when the valves are open. The fact that it can accommodate a single person, or as many as three is a plus. In addition to paddeling, the fact that it can accommodate a motor or a sail is most impressive. Because I love to sail, I ordered my boat with the quick sail which is designed for downwind sailing. However, I discovered I could open the sail up and turn it sideways and convert my boat into a full-sailing kayak enable to tack. I know can use my 380x in just about any kind of water and wind direction. I have had many compliments and people wanting a picture of it when seen on the water. It has been a great ad for Sea Eagle since the name can be seen on the sail from all directions. I would recommend Sea Eagle to all
