NEW WAVE KAYAK's take: The Mongoose is the choice for boaters who want to surf a big juicy wave, ride a wild hole and boof tight, technical drops. The roomy storage area stows enough gear for extended good times. If you are looking for a boat that handles the steep creeks while retaining its ability for hole riding and surfing, the Mongoose is for you.
--Chiaroscuro, this beats the bowling glove with 'Velcro straps make for easy adjustment and fast removal and placement of the mongoose'
