What to Invest in First Kayak?

Beginner’s think they can use their intuition to buy a kayak that’s right for them. Like moths to a flame they end up attracted to the least seaworthy, most inefficient, poorly designed boats with bad ergonomics (vessels that hardly deserve to be called kayaks). In addition to having serious safety problems, the boats beginners usually choose hinder their learning and aren’t much fun to paddle. Here’s a tip: if a new sit-inside touring kayak sells for less than $1000.00, it’s not worth owning — not even for a beginner. Even if it’s only $100, it ain’ t no bargain. There…

Annas Acuta

Pocket Friendly Kayaks

Both archeology and anthropology indicate that the native peoples of Siberia, Alaska, Canada, and Greenland have been using skin-on-frame kayaks for thousands of years to obtain much needed protein for their diets. Consequently, Alfred Heurich, Johannes Klepper, and, Walter Hon all used similar technology combined with modern materials to create their “Delphin”, “Klepper”, and “Folboat” folding kayaks starting in the early 1900’s. However, it was not until Frank Goodman of Valley Canoe Products introduced the first commercially available fiberglass sea kayak called the “Annas Acuta” (Inuit for Pintail Duck) in 1974 that sea kayaking was vaulted to the forefront as…

A touring kayak is the best kayak for people who enjoy taking extending trips that may expose them to unpredictable environmental conditions.

This type of hull has a larger V-shape cross section in the center, for better straight line tracking and a smaller secondary V-shape on each side, providing resistance to capsizing. Another common type of kayak that is best for safety and stability is molded into a hollow shape that you sit…

Secondly, and perhaps what will begin to take shape in to the bulk of this review, is how extremely good value kayaks have become in recent years, largely thanks to revolutionary new construction…
