Iam in Tonawanda. I use two kayaks the one I use on creeks,canal small lakes is a 14 foot Wilderness systems Tsunami 140. I have taken it out a few times outside of the break wall in Lake erie and its ok. I wouldnt want to use a 12 foot pungo on the lake Erie. The pungo is fine for creeks not BIG lake Erie. I could always let you try my Tsunami 140 if you want. My other Lake boat is a NDK Greenlander Pro.
As far as outfitters Evergreen Outfitters has many differant kayaks to try. There kinda far away in Ashville right by Jamestown but worth the trip. Peaks and Paddles right in Tonawanda has many demos BUT all Prijon kayaks. There kinda pricey but very good TUFF kayaks. Also Oak Orchard kayaks has many brands to try. Even Bay Creek kayak in Rochester is another place about an hour drive from Buffalo.All of these places are hAving a demo day very soon.
We just did a paddle last night out of Erie Basin Marina and I could have let you try out my Tsunami 140. Plus another guy brought an extra kayak just in case someone eles wanted to go. Iam part of the Buffalo Outdoor Meetup group. Here was are paddle from last night.
