Looking for a new Kayak


This is Camille Pierce and I’ve been a member of Paddling.net for a long time. Many moons ago, I bought an Inflatable Kayak which I used a lot. Recently, however, my Inflatable Kayak finally went belly-up. Anyone know who I can ask for assistance on buying another Kayak? Preferably hard rather than soft sided. It was such a pleasure and I really hope I can use another Kayak in the near future. Your help is appreciated.

Give a few specifics on…
where you paddle, and what type conditions as well as a cost ceiling, and your likes and dislikes, Sit in vs. sit on, etc and you will get a bunch of replies.



your personal info…
It might not be a good idea to put your address on this forum. it’s risky.

Also tell us your height, weight, and shoe size. It does make a difference.
