The Intex Challenger kayaks are not hard shelled kayaks so they won’t track as well or be as durable as a hard shell kayak is or should be. These kayaks are made for on lakes and mild rivers. Inflatable kayaks will puncture if you run over a something sharp, so you do need to take care and should avoid fast flowing rivers with rapids and floating logs.
