Also consider canoe rowing

When I could not kayak I took up canoeing and eventually set mine up for rowing. It works for fat folks like me. I found I could keep up with sea kayaks because I could easily row 4 or 5 mph.
I really only took up kayaking because that's what all the cool kids were doing and a kayak is more run to play with in waves. When rowing their is a lot less playing and a lot more just going wherever you want.
