Top 5 Tips for picking the right kayak.

By: Bryboy

Tip 1: Ask yourself, what will you be using it for? How often will you be using it? This will guide your decision. Do you want a kayak for fishing?

The majority of you will need something lightweight and sturdy. Sit on top kayaks are often stable with the capacity to go further.

Tip 2: How to choose a kids kayak

Sit on tops are great fun and can get kids used to paddling. If the child is just looking to have fun these are also ideal.

If your children want to learn how to do the sport professionally then you should think about what kind of kayaking they will might want to do, touring or white water are often the favourites.

Tip 3: Buying Used Kayaks

On the other hand, a used kayak is a great way of getting into kayaking, used kayaks are also great if you want to add to your collection.

Tip 4: Buy something lightweight

If it's heavy then this quite often reduces the amount you will use the kayak. Royalex boats can usually be carried with ease by only one person, and very easily by two, making moving and loading much easier and experience has proven to us that they get used a lot more. Another benefit is the quality of the plastic which is used in the manufacturing process.

Tip 5: Buy something reliable

You don't want your kayak to snap in severe situations. Pick something study and with a long guarantee. Good manufacturers are old town, mad river and perception.
