I once paddled my sea kayak with a racing canoeist who borrowed his son's rec boat and used his single-blade canoe paddle. Even though he was pushing a huge bow wave, I had to work to keep pace with him.
Getting your stroke down is the first step.
After that, decide what conditions you want to paddle in, and shop used. There is a whole world of used sea kayak deals out there, approaching the cost of a new rec boat. If it's speed and conditions you want, you'll be much happier in the long run.
