Are there any kayakers out there on BF? I'm surrounded by water where I live, so I figure it would be a great summer activity to get into.
Being as I'm just starting out, I think I'm going to try to find a slightly used kayak. Anyone have any suggestions on length? I would think no more than 12 feet long? (Also, I'm just going to be throwing it in the back of a pickup, so I don't want it sticking too far out the back.) I'll probably just be on lakes and flat water, so I don't need a fancy sea kayak.
Also, let's hear your fun kayaking stories and pics!
