What to Consider Before Buying an Inflatable Kayak

Has the great outdoors started to call your name? Are you sick of borrowing or renting an inflatable kayak for your adventures? If you are finally ready to take the leap, and purchase your own inflatable kayak, then you have come to the right place. At Air Kayaks we have many high quality inflatable kayaks for sale, and our goal is to help you to find the best one for you. That is why we have come up with this list of things to consider before you make your purchase:

  • What will you use it for?- Do you plan on using your kayak on running water, like a river? If so, an inflatable whitewater kayak might be for you. On the other hand, if you plan on taking your kayak to a lake or another open body of water, then a touring kayak might be your best bet.
  • Do you want company?- If you plan on taking trips by yourself, then a one person kayak is for you, but if you think you will want some company from time to time, investing in a two person kayak is a good choice.
  • How much are you willing to spend?- The general rule of thumb with inflatable kayaks is that you get what you pay for. If you buy the first cheap kayak that you see, you aren't likely to be happy with the result. However, you shouldn't buy the most expensive option right away either. Do plenty of research to find the best one for your needs.
