Is the Tetra 10 a Good Sit-On-Top to Buy?

This depends on you and what you want. But before giving our opinionated review on this kayak, let us first mention a few of the important specifications and features that are built into it. And remember, our opinion on the Tetra 10 by Ocean Kayak is just that, only our opinion.

We all have different tastes and different reasons for buying any specific kayak. Some of us are tall, some of us are shorter, there are beginners and expert paddlers.

Ocean Kayak Tetra 10 review

Beginners, Intermediates, Shorter Paddlers!!!

But hey!!! If you would rather view a video review on this specific kayak then listen to my boring talk here’s one that is useful. There’s another video further down the page.

Short Mention of the Specifications and Features

Length: 10 feet 8 inches.

Width: Just under 30 inches at 29.5 inches.

Hybrid Comfort Seating, adjustable foot braces, paddle keep.

Storage Space: 14 by 7.5  inch waterproof bow hatch to keep your gear.

Would I Buy the Tetra 10 Kayak?

Absolutely Not!!! And the reason is because I’m 6 foot 3 inches and this kayak is made for smaller people. But I might consider buying it’s bigger brother the Terta 12 which is a 1 foot and a half longer giving my legs a little more room. Maybe your taller too?

Check out the Tetra 12 and other kayaks.

As I said, at the top of the page there are many different reasons people buy different kayaks. Just because I wouldn’t buy this one doesn’t mean it won’t fit you or someone else perfectly. So lets sum this kayak up in a few sentences below and also answer what type of person it’s best suited for. We have also added a video review below.

The Ocean Kayak Tetra 10 is a sporty sit-on-top kayak, its hull design is sleek with clean lines and is built to work equally well in calm lakes and rougher waters of the surf. Its lightweight and compact and provides excellent maneuverability.

If comfort is one of your main concerns, the Tetra 10 comes with the Comfort Hybrid Seat its adjustable so you can find the most comfortable setting for you, there’s built in lumbar support and also a little bungee bag to keep things.

Who is the Tetra 10 best for? Its going to provide a lot of stability out on the water so its a good choice for both beginners and intermediates paddlers. Probably more importantly, its a good choice for smaller people, people under 6 foot, woman and maybe kids interested in the sport of kayaking.

I wouldn’t call this a fishing kayak but the ample storage space is useful for anglers.
