what's wrong with both?

I've found some good local paddling locations from others in this forum, people who, again, have proven knowledge. Some of those people have even pointed me to good local kayak shops.
As for boat fit, I only trust my body.
I don't think there's any magic to a local shop that makes it necessarily more or less trustworthy than someone in this forum with a proven track record. In both cases, one is going on the advice of a stranger. Sure, one has a workplace related to the sport.
I don't understand why one cannot use all the resources available to them, rather than automatically and arbitrarily ruling one out.
To me personally this is THE most valuable resource this website has to offer (classified ads being a close second).
