Fibreglass, paddle floats, navigation maps, self-rescue…you'd like to enjoy the water in a kayak, but perhaps you aren't feeling ready for the investment of time and money it takes to get into the sport. There are lots of alternatives out there for new and recreational paddlers, one of which is a sit-in kayak. Sit-in kayaks have similar hull shapes to their sit-on-top counterparts, but instead of sitting on top of the kayak, you sit in the boat with your legs fully or partially covered. Sit-in kayaks share many benefits with sit-on-top’s, but often are more comfortable to use and less expensive.

There are sit-in kayaks designed for fishing, surfing, touring and more. Some of these are considered specialty boats, but most sit-in’s are built with recreational or beginner paddlers in mind. Some are fibreglass, but most are made from tough, inexpensive, rotationally moulded plastic. Sit-in kayaks have a few advantages over sit-top’s, one of which is comfort. Boats often have better designed seats, thigh rests and foot rests. Paddlers who have limited flexibility will feel at ease in a more natural seating position. Sit-in’s are fun and a great way to enjoy kayaking… so, grab a paddle and sit-on a traditional kayak today.
