Kids bang their hands, knuckles, fingers when
attempting to get the paddle blade in the water
on a really wide, huge cockpit, adult kayak.
Look at stuff like this - for young kids -
Jackson Fun 1.5
Jackson Kayak Shooting Star
Wilderness Systems Piccolo
Perception Acadia Scout
Look at a short paddle length as well, less weight for kids
While you are on the quest for a kids kayak,
keep a certain mindset in place.
Petite women and small lightweight guys
(welterweight boxers, jockeys, etc) also kayak.
There are kayaks in the paddlesports market
to fit this demographic of people.
