  14 - 15' Kayaks
  Posted by: AndrewBolton on Jan-29-14 7:48 PM (EST)

such as
- Tsunami 14x
- Dagger alchemy
- Perception Carolina
- Venture Easky 15
- Necky Manitou 14
- Venture Islay 14
Are all excellent choices.
I would recommend starting in the 14-15' class of quality boats with full decklines and front & back watertight hatches. This class of boat will perform well in most any inland or shoreline situation and unlike the shorter, slower and less seaworthy "recreational" class it won't be limiting as your skills and interest expand. They are suitable for club paddles, lake and sea fishing, 30 mile open water day tours, small wave surfing, rock hopping, tidal race play, rolling, creeking, etc...

Most nowadays are skegged, which makes paddling open water in wind much more enjoyable in many conditions.
