I’m new to the group. I have been looking for a kayak extensively for the last 3 weeks and have finally narrowed it down to two choices. I was hoping that I can get some opinions on these…
First about us… two women 5’3 and 5’5 both at about 130lbs. Looking to kayak in Oleta River Park (camping park), Miami Beach, florida keys, bay areas, lake by the house, etc. We would (from time to time) like to be able to take a cooler, maybe some fishing stuff (we fish w/ yoyos), snorkeling equip, dry bag, and the dog - not all these activities at the same time but these are the kind of things we plan on doing. I personally would like to catch some small beach waves, but that’s just me.
Ok the choices…
- Used hobie kona (2-3 yrs old) in really good shape w/ paddles, seats, and cover included for $600.00
- New ocean kayak frenzy (2 of them) for $300 for one and $270 for the other (cause it’s dirty)… Total = $780 w/ tax and including accessories we need.
I really appreciate any advice.
