Thinking about buying your first kayak? I have two posts that will tell you -almost- everything you need to know:
The first - Here - will give you the basic info you need to pick out your first kayak.
The second - Here - will talk about all the gear you need to kayak safely.
There is a big 'buy in' to get started kayaking, but after that it is a relatively inexpensive experience. Then when you're ready to start paddling, go Here to learn all you need to know with video lessons.
Then have fun on the water, and soon you will be here!
