Choosing the Best Kayak in 2012, 70% Of The Time Your Doing It Right


It's march and that means we have to start thinking about spring and summer activities again. One excellent activity to focus on is kayaking. Kayaking is a great way to have fun and socialize with your friends. You can do it pretty much anywhere that there's water so technically 70% of Planet Earth is Kayak compatible. We even found some cool kayaks you can use to explore with and get a good upper body work out with, at the same time. So this spring/summer try kayaking instead of getting all greased up and lazily flopping your fat body around on a beach?


Choosing a kayak may seem tough at first. There are ocean kayaks, fishing kayaks, recreation kayaks and more. So how do you choose? The question you should ask yourself is "where am i going?" If you spend your summer at a quiet lake resort then a simple recreational kayak like the Vapor by Old Town Canoes may be all you need. If your taking the kiddies to the beach and want to hit the waves or show off your triceps then an ocean rated kayak like the 9-Feet Frenzy by Ocean Kayak would suit you better. If you need to have adrenaline constantly flow through your body this summer and want a fast, fun ride, then a professional white water rapid kayak like the Green Boat Whitewater River Kayak by Dagger is where it's at. 


Necky Chatham 16 Carbon Kayak - 2010This next one is for the classy, die hard, true adventurer. We even put it in its own paragraph. It is the Carbon fiber Necky Chatham 16. This is for a real deal, allcoolshit lifstyle living champions at life. Necky Chatham kayaks in general are not for bullshiters that went into a cave once or did a few miles down some lazy river to post about it on facebook. If you talk about how cool you are with friends because of your kayaking skills this one is not for you. This kayak is toughest, and best performing kayak available today. You can read more about its awesomeness below.
Now that that's settled here is a list of the above mentioned kayaks and some others in between, and don't forget to buy a Dry Case waterproof phone case for your phone because Kayaks aren't exactly  cheap and you don't want to add a phone to the pricetag.
