What to get?

Post by davetee » Sat Sep 16, 2017 5:09 pm

Only been kayaking a short while with my inflatable, enjoy it a lot as I'm getting on, retired early, and already I'm thinking of a hardshell...hmmmm...pyranha fusion river tour...or Perception Expression 11...eenie..meenie.... 🤔

I'm quite chunky at 16st and only 5' 7.5"...just wondering what my best options would be.

I'm also considering the Perception Carolina. Does anyone have any experience using these?

Almost every paddler in the country will give you the same advice. Join a club, even if you're not normally a 'club' person. You'll get to try a variety of boats and you'll get safe coaching until you decide what sort of paddler you want to be.
