  kayak length
  Posted by: old_user on Sep-06-12 2:10 PM (EST)
 

Some of that depends on the seas/conditions you paddle, your size/weight, etc.

In general, I find 14' a little short other than for training and day trips. I prefer about 16', high profile for more seas.

24" width is standard for beginners/intermediates; 22" is faster of course.

The more I am doing lakes/slow rivers I go a little shorter........14' to 15'.
