Also looking at getting in to kayaking. You thinking of going flat water or river kayaking?

Well, I posted an enclosed kayak in the middle, but sounds like you want the ocean kayak. Good for getting a tan and can still handle most currents/waves.

yea. Sorry only the middle pic loaded for me. I'll have to check at home or phone

edit. Just checked. I like the one where my legs go in. My friend has those. You sit in and there's a little opening with a cover that you can store some sh1t in.

My Ride: A car.
my step-bro has a model that has a foot operated paddle wheel that he uses to go off-shore fishing almost every morning. It sticks out a bit from the bed of his F350. He also installed a fish-finder on it, heh.

this is what I have... good for day trips, agile, you can store a lot of stuff and its wide enough to stand up in (balance pending). easily portage'able, can take a good beating... and I have a splash skirt for it, so it keeps you're bottom half dry. I would recommend it, its just an entry level flat water kayak, but it does the job just fine.

Two in a canoe is very close in speed to one person in a kayak.

We started with a tandem kayak, aka a 'divorce boat.'

They do take up a lot of space and are not easy to pack up, or store away.

Still fun, relaxing and a good time. Not as much effort or strain as I had thought either.

Solly, don't know if they have REI where you are, but I did their "intro to ocean kayak" class just to try it out.

Even if you don't have an REI, check the places that sell kayaks to see if they do group paddles, or guided day trips or whatever. Its a great chance to try a boat or a few different boats and talk to the guides about what to buy for the kind of paddling you think you'll do.

Also may try meetup.com to see if there are paddling groups near you. May be a floating sausagefest, but you may be able to talk to boat owners about their gear and see what they like.

May even be one with a fleshlight mounting bracket.

and that's exactly what I'll be doing lol. I can't drop almost a grand on these things. Much like that thread posted today, ignorance is bliss. I've used $300-500 kayaks and they were perfect I thought lol.

Or just go to REI, take a class, find the kayak that best fits your needs, then steal it.

All your problems are solved.
