Leisure Kayaks or Kayaks Used For Tour Such kayaks are really great for the beginner. Remember that such kayaks have been created with the notion of leisure in mind and have been tailored to meet the demands of every weather condition. A lot of such kayaks have additional luggage compartments that can survive the kayaker for almost two days. Leisure kayaks are just like kayaks meant for touring. But leisure kayaks are more likely to be used on calm waters. One thing about kayaks meant for touring is that they are stronger than leisure kayaks and they have a storage compartment which can take up one or two days supplies. This type of kayak is generally stronger than leisure kayaks. If you want to know the quality of kayak equipments, the best way is to test the equipments. This can be done in person or you can get to the waters with an experienced kayaker.
These are all good reasons for choosing an inflatable over a rigid kayak, but still more reasons why. So read on to learn more about how sturdy, safe, easy to set up, the many styles there are and finally how well they do versus a rigid kayak. 1. Inflatable kayaks are sturdier than ever imagine. These portable kayaks are made with durable material that you can hit with the sharp edge of a claw hammer. There are inflatable kayaks that are made with the same material used in boats the US Coast Guard and rescue crew use. You have quality kayaks and boats such as those made by Sea Eagle, Innova and Zodiac that offer nothing but the best materials to build their inflatable water crafts. For example, Sea Eagle Kayaks are constructed of tough 1,000 denier polyester supported high pressure fabric with quadruple thickness electronic welded seams. They test their kayaks by pounding them mercilessly with the sharp edge of a claw hammer and it had no effect nor did stabbing them with a screwdriver. Innova Kayaks are made of the same material used in Zodiac inflatable boats that the US Coast Guard uses. They are Made with rugged rubber coated 1200 denier Nitrylon, no PVC, on the outer hull and LitePack material on the interior. Innova test their kayaks mercilessly for puncture and abrasion wear and tear. You dont have to worry about bumping or scraping your kayaks at the docks.
Lift Assist Accessories: Companies now make accessories to help you get your kayak unto your roof. One such product is the Hullavator by Thule, this hydraulic assist rack folds down the side of the vehicle where the kayak is loaded at waist height and the whole thing folds back onto the roof with the aid of mechanical assistance - Nice! Weve had many customers tell us that without this system they wouldnt have been able to continue kayaking because of physical limitations brought on by age or injury. Sure its expensive, but worth every penny. Roller Loader: This little device works to help you get your kayak up on your vehicle. It basically is a dolly that suctions on to the back of your vehicle and you just roll the kayak on or off. A very low-tech option that works particularly well with mini-vans, SUVs and station wagons is a rubber backed bathmat. Just to place the mat (with rubber backing down - so it wont slide) on the rear of the vehicle and place one end of the kayak on the mat and slide onto the rack. Here is a video clip of a kayak being loaded using a bathroom mat.
If you have never been out kayaking on your own then you will want to make sure that you have someone more experienced with you. While it is a fairly calm ride, there are things that you are going to want to watch out for.

This way, you will be able to know for sure that this is a hobby that you want to get more involved in. Also, it will teach you what to look for when shopping for the perfect kayak. When you head out on the waters the first couple of times you will want to make sure that your experienced friend is walking you through everything that you need to know. If you feel as though you do not have anyone that you can turn to for this matter then it is time to hunt down a professional. There are many places that offer personal coaching on how to kayak. You can rent their boat and then hire an instructor for a couple of hours.
