Sea Kayak Buyer's Guide

The best sea kayak to buy (or build) depends on your level of skill and experience. If you don't know the difference between a sea kayak and a river kayak, see this guide to types of kayaks. We've divided our "Sea Kayak Buyer's Guide into the following four levels of paddlers' experience:
  • Beginner (very little or no experience and no formal training in a one-person sit-inside kayak)
  • Experienced Novice (have used a sit-inside kayak before and have practiced wet-exits and re-entry rescues)
  • Intermediate (generally meaning you've had some lessons, been on trips, dealt with paddling in wind and waves)
  • Expert
