The Lifetime Recruit 6.5 Kayak is a great option for beginner paddlers. Designed for youth ages 5 and up, or up to 150 lb, the Recruit 6.5 is durably built with a stable hull design that helps improve balance and motor skills. Re-entry is easier with the swim-up deck and molded hand grips, and self-bailing scupper holes drain the cockpit of water. The kayak is simple to carry using the center carry handle.
