Ruben (fishKraft) and I spent a little time paddling/ surfing in our Stealths while we were at Crabfest. I had yet to paddle the new Fisha 460 so I wanted to give it a test. The boat is designed to be the most recreational design of the Stealth lineup. Its just over 15' long and just over 26" wide. The boat was amazing quick to accelerate and catch the wave. Once on the wave the hull planed out and the rudder did a great job keeping it strait down the line. Even in pretty confused seas I felt the 460 to be ever bit as stable as most 28" or less plastic boats Ive been in.

Here is a quick go pro video I took while surfing around the head.

Now that looks fun, but what happens when you fall off and the Stealth keeps going?

Fell off twice while surfing and playing in the rocks. You just hop back on and paddled. The boat doesn't get swept away if you fall off. You tend to get pushed with the boat. Come out and play next time man. We will start easy and work our way up. Not even surfing just being in the bouncy water is a great start.

Will be bringing my dry suit every time, even when I don't plan on kayaking.
