I’m new but determined 55 yr old guy who is looking to get into kayaking. I need some advice about the Eskia. I have a chance to purchase this kayak for $800.00. It’s in great shape and fits me but I’ve noticed there’s not a lot of reviews out there about this model. I guess I’m curious why there isn’t. Does anyone have any info about this kayak.
There are 22 reviews here: https://paddling.com/reviews/product/necky-kayaks-eskia-kayak/
Before buying any kayak, you should paddle it for at least 30 minutes. You said you’re “looking to get into kayaking.” Coaching by a certified instructor will make you a happier and safer paddler.

Welcome to a terrific sport!
