Set a budget before buying your first Kayak. A kayak can start from $ 200 to many thousands, keeping in mind if it belongs to a famous brand, has a new model or a shape and if it is build with an expensive material.
Select the correct size for the type of kayaking you plan to do. If you are looking for a kayak that is easy to turn and manoeuvre, you want a kayak that is 12 feet or less. If you want a more stable kayak in strong currents, choose a wide kayak. Your best option is to approach the maximum a kayak, such as a kayak, (4.5 to 5 m long, 58-63 cm wide, and a moderate load) with a good resale value. Start with an intermediate design and think that this will not be the first boat last throughout your life.
The shape of the boat is another issue that needs to be resolves before buying. Generally, a kayak is flat-shaped, round and V-shaped. So, you need to determine what shape suits your voyage.
