Sit-ins typically have a narrow hull and are primarily designed to move through the water quickly. This sleeker design makes them more prone to capsizing and thus, requires the kayaker to utilize a greater sense of balance than on a sit-on-top model. However, at the same time, since the submerged seating brings you down closer to the water's level, it makes for an easier paddling experience.


This cockpit seating style is essentially the required version needed for when you are out in rough or fast-moving whitewater settings. The sit-ins are also very common amongst the recreational, day touring, and sea kayak categories.
