Perception Kayaks Carolina 12.0 

The Carolina 12.0 from Perception is the shorter brother to the longer Carolina 140 and caters to beginner paddlers who desire comfort and stability. 

Featuring a generously sized cockpit and 26" beam, the Carolina 12.0 provides easy access for paddlers between 100lbs-200lbs. The Zone deluxe seating system delivers six points of adjustment and is comfortably padded to keep you on the water longer. 

The hull includes two 'inverted keels' to aid tracking, which also significantly boosts the stability and user-friendliness. 

The Carolina 12.0 is fairly light at 49lbs and is easy to maneuver making it great exploring small lakes, ponds, rivers, and sheltered bays. Best of all, it includes bow and stern bulkheads for enough storage capacity for day trips and overnight adventures!
