  Kayak advice
  Posted by: johnheiam on Jan-29-14 8:53 PM (EST)

This advice is all good. The Manitou 13 is fast, and light for its size and material. I think you would be very happy with it. After you buy the kayak and get a rack, think about getting a better paddle. A $100 paddle is four times better than a $50 paddle. A $200 paddle is twice as good as a $100 paddle. A $400 paddle will make you think you have died and come back with a stronger body. Go out with the club and switch paddles with some experienced members. Lifting a paddle in the shop does not compare to actually using it after you have been paddling for a couple of hours.
