Given its location it must have belonged to the Irish Naval Service

Great fun, Everyone joins in even the Mrs, Especially while waiting at a busy slipway. Keeps the kids excited, Chuck it on the roofbars when you finished, Hose it down when your home and stick it back on the wall. Simples

These sit upons are a great starter for 10, all thats been said before stable, safe, relatively cheap compared to a closed cockpit kayak, and easy to get back on / in if you fall off.

Down side is, there not a closed cockpit kayak!, where you can be a bit more adventurous wrt the water you decide to paddle.

In general a good way to get started with Kayaking but will be limited if you want to move onto learning the next level.

Ive got a couple, both Ocean Kayaks. Prowler 13 for myself and also the Malibu 2 for when the wife fancies going out as well.

As stated, good for excercise, easy to launch/recover.... and cheap to run

[QUOTE=GJ0KYZ;455273(b) does kayaking knacker your shoulders?[/QUOTE]

To answer the second question is a bit more difficult, it depends on how much you do and how extreme you take it like all things.

Most injuries are actually getting it off and on the water (remember benz ze knees!)

If your just doing simple paddling then you'll be fine, but a few of my friends in the club have dislocated there shoulders doing "high braced" supports when surfing or a bit of white water.
