I started kayaking about 8 or 9 years ago after a fair amount of canoeing experience. Vastly prefer over canoeing!
Back then, kayaking was still somewhat obscure and the boats started at around $600. You usually had to go to a specialty shop to get one. I’ve always borrowed or rented.
Now that it’s become a more popular sport the price range has dropped considerably. And there’s a wider variety to choose from at the “cheap” end.
Although i’m not a “beginner,” I am poor. I also don’t intend on doing a whole lot more than scooting around on lakes, mellow bays, marshes, etc. So i’m looking at entry level, aka starter kayaks.
A local mega sporting goods store is having a sale and i’m taking a look at several models and also reading reviews of them online.
The picture is taken at the store… the yellow one in the foreground, i like a lot.
This is at the top of the list of things i’ve been promising myself for years. I know it’s worth the investment because… not only is it a great fitness activity for me… but it also relaxes me & makes me feel mentally renewed. I struggle with depression and am trying to find healthy activities to counteract it.
yes, same pic as in my scavenger entry… i realized it qualified as a funny “virgin”3 years ago
