Topic - Sea Kayak

Toby_W on 15 Mar 2013
So I've moved near the sea and am desperate to get out on the water, explore the local rivers and coast. Local club seems good.

I've raced a sea kayak a few times, done a few day trips down rivers and done a white water course but aside from this am an utter novice.

1. I need something cheap to get out on so I can get a feel for what I want to paddle in.
2. There are a few plastic boats around about that look nice, stable etc and a P&H sirius HF that's a bit battered but obviously glass and not really for a novice but it would be more fun and put me on a steeper learning curve (more expensive but still cheap being 2nd hand). I'm going to go and sit in it today. I'm just shy of 6'3 and 76kgs.

I'm tempted by the sirius as it may prove a good fit and I'm one of these sickening people who learns things very quickly and easily.

Anyone got any pearls of wisdom they can share?
