Before we purchased, I contacted the company to try to figure out how long she would be able to use the kayak (I didn’t want to get it and find out that she would be too big when she turned 10, for example). They explained that there is no real height limit, only a weight limit (130 lbs). Obviously this kayak is shorter than an adult’s kayak, but it’s true, an adult woman under the weight limit could use it though her knees would be somewhat bent. Anyway, the point is that if you are buying this for an 8 year old, it should be usable for years.
I admit we haven’t exactly strained the limits of this kayak, but for our use (8/9/10 year old on lakes) we’ve been nothing but pleased. I don’t know if it’s lacking some features people want but for us, it’s done the job and we’ve been happy.

We bought one of these for my daughter when she turned 7, and she took to it immediately. The molded seat fits her just fine, and will probably be good for a few years. We just bought a second one for my son when he turned 6.
These are solid little kayaks. Dropped one off of the roof rack onto the asphalt with no problems. No frills, but solid little kayak for the money. Just got back from an everglades trip where we did a two mile loop through the mangroves. Spectacular!
