  • Amazing kayak

    Posted by Papa Bear on Feb 2nd 2021

    I've used this kayak tandem with my wife or a child, solo paddled, motorized, and while fishing. It's very versatile with the sliding seat and unmatched track/tie-down options. It's surprisingly efficient to paddle, and easy to handle. The seat hurt my rear end (a lot) on my first 4-hour outing, but once I loosened the straps under the seat, it got extremely comfortable. The bag that hangs on the back of the seat gapes open and doesn't hold things as securely as it could, but I didn't even know it had a bag when I bought it, so no big deal. All in all, I enthusiastically recommend this kayak.

    Awesome. Tracks well, very stable, unlimited space for fishing, camping, taking the dog along, or 2 people. Extremely pleased!

  • Careful where you buy

    Posted by Chad on Jun 7th 2020

    Love the room and the amount of accessories I can put in this boat. I would definitely order from Jackson. I ordered mine from Kayak City and it was damaged and have gotten no reply back from them in almost 3weeks now via email or phone. Have been able to fix most of the damage according to Jackson's method but not able to repair all of it but good enough to enjoy it. Highly recommend this if you love accessorize and still have room after doing so.

    Before purchasing my YuPIK, finding reviews proved difficult - unsure if it was because it's a new boat or just not a quick mover. Because of that, I'll be as thorough as possible for those looking at them.

    To preface, I've been fishing from a Cuda 14 for the past 5 years, which I'll be comparing it to.

    Thus far, I've taken my YuPIK on about 15 river miles, and about 4 hours over a flat lake. All I can say is, "Wow". Something about paddling my YuPIK brings a child-like smile to my face. Coming from my Cuda, the stability I have on the YuPIK is overwhelming. I could stand from my Cuda, confidently, only in select water conditions. After 30 minutes on my YuPIK I was SUPing through class I, II & II+ rapids without even thinking twice. Didn't even know that could be a, 'thing'. The length, at just over 12', gives a good blend of maneuverability & speed. The endless ways to customize via the track system is obvious, so I won't spend time discussing.

    In my opinion, Jackson has hit the sweet spot in engineering a nearly perfect kayak fishing platform.

    Beginners will love it for its simplicity & comfort. Other veteran kayak anglers will love it for the ability to build it to your specs. In my opinion, the more experienced you are fishing from a kayak & in tune with what you need & want, the more you can appreciate what the YuPIK brings to the table and its deck setup malleability.

    Jackson, you did it again. Homerun. And I will add, from the customer service folks I've interacted with, to the warehouse folks I've spoken with, I've had nothing but great experiences. Special thanks to the warehouse team who sent my boat to me early so I could have my Yupik in time for a river trip I had planned.

    I will be a Jackson advocate & customer for as long as I'm able to command a kayak. Great company, best in class product, but more importantly, great people driving the company day-to-day.
