The advantages of inflatable kayaks
Inflatable kayaks are easier to use and store than traditional kayaks. They are perfect for people of all skill levels, including beginners. This is because inflatable kayaks are easier to maneuver than hard shell kayaks, due to their much lighter weight. Inflatable kayaks also be slower, making it easier to navigate.Inflatable kayaks need little maintenance or set up – simply attach a pump and let it inflate with air. They inflate in a short amount of time and are ready to go out on the water!
Inflatable kayaks are actually very durable water craft. Made of thick rubber, some are built to go white water rafting. This means that they can survive even the roughest waters with violent encounters with sharp rocks and logs. If a puncture or tear occurs, it can be easily fixed with repair kits (which are usually included with the kayak) consisting of strong adhesive and a rubber patch. Depending on the investment, inflatable kayaks can range anywhere from cruising on lakes, to navigating serious ocean currents. The higher the price, the more durable the kayak will be, but durability depends on the purpose that the inflatable kayak will be used for.
