Just want to point out that Star has been building boats since 1989, about as long as Hyside. Of course, I have to recognize the epic glue failure that Star had in the beginning which newcomers have based their marketing efforts around. Compare design, industry innovations, warranty, and customer service. Learn the truth about the differences between hand glued and heat-welded to make an objective decision. Also know that many brands are "pumped" out of the same damn factory with a different label (NRS "PVC", Naish, Badfish, Boardworks, Hala, BIC, Hobie, Starboard are all built by the same manufacture).
There are many opinions here which is great, learn the truth beyond that and you may be surprised.
Hyside build great boats and has great service. Good luck and Happy Paddling!
