I have the chance this Saturday to purchase a used Surfjet or used Kaos, both at a good price.
I live in North Jersey and vacation in Virginia yearly, so sloppy East Coast surf it is.
My experience started about 15 yrs ago with a LiquidLogic 'Lil Joe on Lake Michigan and fell in love with the crashing surf. Surfing the wave as long as possible and staying upright were my primary goals. Unfortunately I had to sell that boat a while back and have since tried surfing in an inflatable kayak (fail!) and a long bargain bin lake kayak (fail!). I figure it’s time to get a real boat that will match my determined eagerness but novice skillset.
I’ve read as much as could be found about these boats online, but when it comes to choosing which would be a better fit given the skills and playground I have to work with?
The most attractive part of the Kaos is that the back support looks to be more substantial, but I’d love to base the decision on more than just that.
