The Kendo was sick! Back in 1998. Is it the same boat?

hey bro, i paddled the id as a beginner and it was a great boat to learn. it is classified as a playboat but is large enough to run big water well. it rolled easily.

If the Id 7.0 hadn't given me bone spurs on my feet, I'd still be in it. That boat is sick. That said, it is not forgiving in the least if you are a beginner. Go Kendo.

I liked both, the little I have paddled them. Not sure if I can recommend one over the other as a beginner boat though. If you think you want to get more into surfing and playboating, the Id would be the better choice; if you want something where you will progress easier in river-running, the Kendo would probably be better.
