I am looking to buy a second hand kayak and would like input from you who know wayyyy more than me.
Firstly I live really close to a large calm lake but also very close to many awesome surf beaches. So the use would be partly lake relaxation and partly coastal fun in the surf.
I had some experience when I was way way youngers… maybe like 30 years ago lol in sit in Kayaks but only on lake and river use. I would have to relearn everything I imagine.
I would love to learn to kayak surf and take advantage of the great beaches here.
So the question is… is it worth getting a used old school sit in type fibre kayak or am I better off going for a sit on? My only real fear with the sit in is the issues with it filling with water if and when I capsize. But I dont want to be limited to just pleasnt calm paddling around… I want to have fun with this.
Any help greatly appreciated.
