My First Kayak
Throwing a backpack over my shoulders and getting out to explore nature is something I love to do. Living on Vancouver Island is the perfect place for this sort of activity. Kayaking may be a natural extension to hiking and a kayak should get me to into places that I have yet to explore.
There is a catch. Unlike hiking, kayaking, the ocean and all that encompasses the two are very new things to me.
I have been digesting all sorts of information about different makes and models of kayaks. What I believe I want, is a boat that can pack my outdoor gear, and allow me to efficiently go further in a day's paddle.
Today I purchased this all black, carbon fibre, Looksha Elite. The boat feels like there is more there than I might be able to handle right now; this is an exciting proposition for me. I am not just going to sit in it and move my arms a little. I might have to develop a new skill set.
