Submitted: 07-19-1999 by Will

My daughter received an Umiak for her 7th birthday. She is now eight and fully into paddling. I think the Umiak allowed her to feel safe (she was in big water and didn't stop to think about it) and equal to the adults paddling with her; she can easily keep pace. This year she has taken to fishing from her kayak--the thrill of Northern Pike to a girl in the cockpit of a kayak is priceless. I would recommend a backband or lower back seat support--would this go against the grain of the Greenland style of the boat? Posture would really be improved with this addition. Also, flotation would be a smart idea--foam is cheap but bags are better. Little kids can paddle--it is too cool to be a Pop of a little paddler.
