You have a few months,..

To figure this out. Keep in mind even if you get advise at kayak shops from "the experts", and paddle some boats at demos, you'll most likely disire a different yak in a year or so. I out grew my very stable 1st kayak in 3 months, and I had no use for it since I don't paddle rivers, so I sold it here on P-net. It might fit your budget better to find a used boat in the 12-14 ft. range for rivers and small lakes and when you have some experience look into a longer yak more suited for big water. Just my 2 cents
