Default Looking to get started kayaking

But not sure if there are any groups local in pensacola, I have heard about a Mythical UWF group which would be great because i live on nine mile.

If anybody has any ideas about where ot start or any local groups that would be great.

also what would be a good first kayak for me. would like to use both on ocean and inland as well

agian as always thanks in advance

I may or may not be selling my brand new OK Prowler13 Angler. Haven't used since I bought and tuition is coming up. Let it go cheap. Let me know if you may be interested

Go to Pensacola Kayak & Sail and Key Sailing ask them if you can demo some of the kayaks that are in your price range..... I always recommend "Try it before you buy it"!

Most of us have purchased a starter kayak and found that we truly love the sport. Some of us upgraded to the top of the line Hobie's and others are content with their original purchase. I have two kayaks and see them as two different types each having some advantage over the other based on thier use.

If you fish in wind and surf, you may want to save your money and get a Hobie for hands free fishing.
