A guide to choosing your inflatable kayak
Just as there are many ways to use kayaks, there are many choices of boats. How do you know which kayak is best for you? When you’re trying to decide on a kayak, focus on a few key ideas:
- Where do you want to paddle? Is it a lake, the seacoast, a river, a little bit of all waterways? This will help you start to narrow your choices. Learn more here.
- Sit-in or sit-on-top? Do you prefer the protection of a traditional sit-in, or the openness of a sit-on-top? If you’re open to either one, that’s fine, too. Learn more here.
- Kayak weight and your budget: Materials, which directly impact the boat’s price, are the biggest factor in the weight and durability of your boat.
- Shape and size considerations: These affect handling and cargo space. It should also be noted that the longer the kayak, the faster it is in the water and the better it holds a straight line (known as tracking).
