Kayaking on the cheap
Posted by: Jdurrua on Feb-16-11 11:37 AM (EST)
I still have a kayak from High school. (class of '85)
If I ever divided the price by the about of trips it has been on I figure it cost me about $.00001 a trip
Step one.... Get the wright kayak the wrong boat at the wright price is still the wrong kayak. ie.... You are a size 10 1/2 boots and you see a 85% off sale for 8 1/2 boot.... GREAT DEAL! Wrong boot :-(
Here is an idea.
Go to the Paddlesport show in Somerset NJ $10.00
Go to to manufactures from around the country about there kayaks... Talk to club members who have been paddling for years. Go to the free seminars (If you buy a ticket on Friday it is good for Saturday and Sunday too)
Once you know what you are looking for then go on ebay or like website and find the deal.
