Recreational Kayaks

Recreational Kayaks from Lost Paddle

If you like to kayak just for fun or if you’re thinking about giving the activity a try, recreational kayaks are the perfect choice. These are kayaks designed for pleasure and relaxation. And, while they may not be able to take on raging rapids, they’ll definitely allow you to enjoy some quiet time out on the water. Here at Lost Paddle, we’re proud to offer a wide range of great kayaks, and we’re always available to help you choose the best one to meet your needs.

Kayak Styles

Kayaks for recreation come in different styles and types. However, two of the most popular options are sit-on-top kayaks and sit-in kayaks.

You’ll find that sit-on-top kayaks are easy to use. You can hop on or off right from the water. So, even if you have no kayaking experience, you shouldn’t have any problems. These kayaks are also easy to take care of and require no draining.

Sit-in kayaks are usually a better choice for those with a bit more experience. They do require some special knowledge on how to use, maneuver, and care for them. However, these are typically very well-made kayaks that are easy to paddle and provide you with more control on the water.

Kayak Materials

You should also know that kayaks are made from various different materials. The cheapest material is plastic. And, while plastic kayaks are often a bit heavy and not quite as long lasting as other options, they can work as kayaks for beginners just looking to try out the sport.

There are also fiberglass kayaks, composite kayaks, and more. Typically, options like these are going to be lightweight, though weights do vary from one kayak to the next, longer lasting, and more costly.

Remember, though, that the right kayak is really just the one that’s right for you!

Kayak Capacities

Finally, you should know that kayaks vary in terms of how much weight they can hold. It’s not just your own weight you have to take into account either. You also have to consider the gear and supplies you want to bring along and their weight in order to find the right match.
