Abigail ScottBy Abigail Scott
I'm Abigail Scott, an author, adventurer, and mother of three. When I'm not navigating the beautiful chaos of motherhood, you can find me tackling the turbulent waters as a professional whitewater kayaker or scaling impressive rock faces as a climbing guide. The rush of adrenaline, whether from kayaking or climbing, is a feeling I cherish deeply. But the thrill doesn't stop there; I capture the breathtaking allure of nature through my lens as a professional photographer. And when I'm not submerged in the wild, my software engineering skills amplify my outdoor pursuits, allowing me to harness technology in unique ways. Through my writings, whether articles or blog posts, I share not just my adventures but my heart, hoping to spark a flame of inspiration in others to break boundaries and experience the world's wonders.

Pelican - Sonic 80X Youth Kayak - Sit-on-Top - 8ft


  • Safe: Our unique manufacturing process allows us to include additional flotation inside the hull of all of our sit-on-tops in order to meet or surpass ABYC standards. This youth kayak holds a maximum weight capacity of 225 lb, and if any water gets in, the scupper holes at the bottom of the kayak will help drain it out, which means more safety for the kids and peace of mind for the parents! This kayak also includes a safety flag.
  • Stable: The twin tunnel hull offers superior stability for a safe and steady ride. It also makes it incredibly easy to get in and out of the kayak.
  • Lightweight: Made of exceptionally durable high molecular weight polyethylene, our kayaks require fewer materials to be built. At 7 ft 9 in and weighing only 35 lb, this kayak is perfectly scaled down in size to suit smaller paddlers.
  • Resistant: Our patented RAM-X material is known for its high-impact resistance and will make your kayak last through time.
  • Comfortable: Paddle in comfort with an adjustable ERGOFORM padded backrest.
