The Perception Hi Life is part sit on top kayak and part stand up paddleboard. With this kayak, you get the best of both worlds, and it provides fun for riders of all ages and levels. It’s versatility is reflected in the higher price.

Designed to be part kayak and part stand-up paddleboard, the Perception Hi-Life is an awesome experience for anybody who loves SUP and kayaking. The Hi-Life can be used while sitting and is exceptionally comfortable and stable while in kayak mode. It can also be used while standing up and becomes a lot more maneuverable but loses some stability. 

The Hi-Life is very durable and comfortable. The foam deck padding provides a significant level of comfort and support for paddling, while the upright seat allows you to feel supported while kayaking. The kayak also makes an impression with other kayakers and comes in a flurry of different color options.

Finally, the Perception Hi-Life is a must-have for kayakers who love to paddleboard.
