One marvelously family-friendly boat.
- Ultra-comfortable open cockpit allows plenty of room to move around inside
- Mesh-backed seat offers higher back support than other kayak seats, making this cockpit ideal for novice paddlers
- Minimal rocker and hard lines at the bow and stern make this boat easy to paddle through a variety of conditions from flat-water to chop
- Bungee cord deck attachments hold a map or spare layer close at hand
- Stern storage gives you a dry place to toss a day pack, dry bag, or other essentials that won't easily fit in the cockpit

Closer picture of the seat, note the paddle holder, it only fits smaller diameter paddles my Carbon AT paddle doesn't fit.
Water tight storage
Inside, so big you can fit a goat inside!
Row, row, row your boat!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Great yak, great price! Was a little worried about the ten foot size, but after playing with it, I'm in love. I like that the seat is very comfortable, and removable, that turns into a camping chair.
This is a fantastic kayak. I mainly use it for smaller, fast moving rivers and creeks. It's easy to maneuver, tracks well,is light weight (I'm a 5'4 female). The seat is the most comfortable I've encountered in a kayak, the dry hatch is roomy and keeps things dry. Plenty of room in the cockpit to put my feet up and relax, nice positining of bungees and paddle holder. My complaints are no drain hole, but it's pretty easy to pick up and drain, and the cup holder doesn't fit standard bottles\cans too well (works fine with the included water bottle). I was a little nervous ordering this online since I had not seen it, but shipping was a breeze, and it's a steal if you can get it on sale.

Would this Kayak be decent for the ocean, mostly calm water but occasionally a little rougher.
Native Watercraft Marvel?
Got one last year on clearance for my wife.She loves it. Great for small rivers here in Iowa.
Damn fine Kayak
Im not that experienced of a paddler, and this is the first boat i have ever purchased. That being said, im glad my first boat was the Marvel 10. The seat is SUPER comfortable. I spent 8 hours in it one day at a wakeboard tournament, and was cruising in comfort the whole time. This thing also took the huge wake like a champ. The dry storage keeps my goodies bone dry, which is probably why its a little difficult to get open sometimes. I have taken my 25lb dog out in it a few times and it seemed very stable and tracked well when she was sitting still. The bungee straps front and rear are also great for holding down muddy shoes. My only complaint is no drain hole. I have to pick the thing up completely over my head to get most of the water out. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a sturdy, comfortable boat.

Hey guys, I'm an experienced canoer and have paddled light rapids in canoes frequently, but my wife and I are wanting to make the switch to kayaks. I'm looking for some recommendations for entry level boats. We will be almost exclusively paddling small, quick rivers that we have previously paddled in canoes, but will likely go through some rapids that we previously portaged around. Any thoughts on boats?
Take a look at the LL Remix XP 9 and 10. They are great beginner, white water kayaks with some added versatility for packing some stuff and camping. Also for anyone just getting in to paddling check out paddling.net for tons of helpful articles, people and ideas.
