Very comfortable, needs better strap clipsReview by Great for the price
Quality
We got this for under $200 at a local sports retailer and we love. It is very comfortable and the foot steps are wide. The only problem I had with this kayak was I had to change out the clips for the seat strap which attach to the anchor points. They are very cheap and bent out the first time we used the kayak. I put a couple of carabiners on the strap and now we are good. This kayak is great for the lake and gentle rivers. I wouldn't hit a class 4 with it though (Posted on 6/14/2017)
Perfect kayak for me.Review by MR16
Quality
This is my first kayak and I have been very pleased with my purchase. It was reasonably priced and tracks better than some of the higher priced kayaks my friends have or have rented. I do need to invest in some scupper plugs to go under my seat and one of the straps on the seat back broke after my first outing but other than that has been great. I am glad I decided to go with the Future Beach Eclipse 102 and it hasn't let me down yet. (Posted on 6/12/2017)
Excellent Kayak For The MoneyReview by Craig
Quality
This is my first kayak and I wanted something I could easily transport and fish from. At 102" it is small enough for me to trow in the back of my pickup and go. Being about 31" wide makes a stable platform to fish from.

It rides great a tracks well in the wind due to it's hull shape. At 64 years young this was a great choice to get away quick and to get some exercise. Wish it came with carry handles, but pit on my own. (Posted on 5/25/2017)
Great for the MoneyReview by Rnme2

I love my kayak. I just wish it had come with scupper plugs. It would have made life a lot less wet. I also wish it had a side handle, not the molded one in the boat. This is my first ever kayak and many people told me not to go with a sit-on top style, but I did not like the idea of crawling in or of worrying about turning over. I am a good swimmer, so I felt the sit-on top would be a good fit.. The boat is stable enough for me to get in and out relatively easy (I am not as young as I use to be). I do a side sit in thigh-high water and swing my legs in. As said above, it tracks well and is easy to maneuver into tight spaces, even for a novice such as myself. If I had some suggestion for someone wanting to purchase, I would say to buy a seat cushion or upgrade to a whole better seat. The seat itself was good when adjusted with the exception of one of the swivel hooks snapping off on my third outing. I replaced both of them with much stronger hooks. This has been a good first kayak and when I want to upgrade I will look for future beach products. Good luck and have fun! I find kayaking the most peaceful of all hobbies. (Posted on 8/21/2016)

Q & A

Q1: Can I buy a spray skirt for my Kayak? If so, where?

A1: Only sit-in kayaks can accept spray skirts, but not all of them do. It all depends on the size of the cockpit and the shape of the lip. Some cockpit dimensions are shown on the product detail page. If you don’t see your cockpit dimensions, you can use a tape measure and check the width and length of your cockpit including the lip. To purchase spray skirts, please visit www.sealsskirts.com.


Q2: Regarding the «weight capacity» to a specific kayak, is there a general rule that applies whether it should suit me or not?

A2: The weight capacity stated on the kayak documentation represent the maximum weight the kayak can hold to be fully usable. For a more comfortable ride, always look for a kayak that has a weight capacity approximately 30 to 40lbs above your actual weight. It’s even more important for sit-on top kayaks as the closer you are to the weight limit, the deeper will the line of floatation be, resulting in more water coming into the kayak from the scupper holes.


Q3: Where do I find the Serial/Warranty #?

A3: Your kayak’s serial number is located behind the seat or on the rear left hand side (when looking at your kayak from the front). Please use this number in order to register your kayak on the Registration section of our website.


Q4: What is the best way to store my kayak?

A4: The ideal way to store a kayak is to sit it on a flat surface. If your kayak remains outdoors, you should keep it covered and out of direct sunlight. Do not leave any straps tightly clinched around your kayak for long periods, especially in warm weather. This could distort the shape of the kayak. For an easy storage and access to your kayak, we recommend to take a look at the different options in the Accessories section of our website.


Q5: I would like to put a rudder system on my kayak, is it possible?

A5: None of our kayaks comes with a rudder system. Even if there are third party rudder system available on the market, we do not recommend the use of any specific one. The installation of a rudder system is done at your own risk. Please note that any permanent alteration of your kayak hull will result in the cancellation of the warranty.
