The experts among us will kindly tell me if I am paraphrasing this right--I read it here a while back:

If a non-expert is trying out a new, better-performing kayak than what he's used to, it SHOULD feel a little tippy.

Meaning (a) it won't be tippy after he/she gets used to it, which will take no time at all, and (b) if it DOESN'T feel a little tippy at first, it will end up holding [you+your kayak] back from moving to the next [personal skill + kayak performance] level.

Did I get that right?
