Love my Hobie Outback, but if you need cheaper, the Ocean Kayak Prowler 13 did me well also

Theres a bunch of good ones to choose from. I like the workout I get from paddling so I prefer yaks better designed for this. The hobies are great fishing kayaks and I would consider them a top choice for fishing but not necessarily for paddling. The best thing as everyone usually agrees on is to go try out several and find one you like best

what tex said outback revo or pro angler, as for the hobies not giving you a work out you dont HAVE to peddle them you can paddle them and if you do IT IS A WORK OUT. but if you have the money i would get a hobie for shure.

Thats what I meant by saying one more designed to paddle. The Hobies are a lot slower to paddle. A lot EASIER to paddle an Ocean, Malibu, or other slimmer design. Maybe I should have been a little more specific butI think most got the point.

I like the workout from paddling and I just can't justify spending that kind of money right now, I mean I could get a small johnboat with a motor and trailer right now for as much as you pay to peddle. I went for stability so i fish out of a cobra tandem 38" wide. Now thats a workout, but i like to fish the gulf the most. Its also good for stand up fishing in the bay and sound. Its not a good idea if you like to travel long distances, even tho i still do:hotsun

You could get a Tarpon 160 like me. Fastest piece of plastic on the water. As much as I try I can never get much of a work out out of it, just too easy to paddle.

I'll second the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 160. So easy to paddle all day. Though you can't stand up in one, but there's the trade-off.



You can also check out Key Sailing on the beach, underneath Surf Burger.



Good luck,

Alex
