Sea Kayak Information

Sea kayaks nowadays come in various shapes and sizes and range in length from 15 feet to 18 feet. Generally, the longer a sea kayak is, the faster it will be through the water, as well as having more storage capacity for camping gear, meaning they are perfect for longer paddles and overnight trips. Shorter Sea kayaks such as the Valley Gemini are designed as as compromise between straight line speed and manoeuvrability, meaning they can be used more easily for rock hopping and surfing but don't have as much space in the hatch's for gear.


Plastic Sea Kayak or Composite Sea Kayak?

One of the most important decisions when buying a sea kayak is the choice between plastic and composite constructions; both carry their own advantages and disadvantages so ultimately the decision will be down to the purchaser. For a lot of people starting out in sea paddling, plastic is the preferred option as they are more robust (they wont normally break unless the impact is very severe) so when landing on beaches, rock hoppingor surfing there is much less chance of serious damage. Plastic is also generally cheaper than composite. Composite sea kayaks offer additional performance, gliding through the water beautifully and will cut through chop and waves with ease.


Composite sea kayaks (especially those made from Carbon/ Kevlar) are also generally lighter than their plastic counterparts.
