when/why narrow sea kayaks are morestable than wide SOTs

Came across this video which covers why narrow sea kayaks are more stable in rough water.

Decent description of something I’ve had to describe many times in the past (with varying success).

Luke does a nice job with all his videos.

He really does. Great mix of direct information, little fluff, clear audio, mixed video and solid production value…

I agree wih his assessment but as an elite surfski paddler I would say as you swing to the narrowest/longest kayaks it goes past the stabilty Luke talks about. Sure they are great for riding swells but big chop is a huge pain. I own a couple rec tandoms also and would take them in heavy chop over my ski any day.
