Well, a few years ago I got interested in trying out Kayaking. So I looked around and I decided on the Breeze by Current Designs. The boat is under 16 feet, so it is a nice size and the weight comes in around 50 lbs., depending on how much you have strapped on the deck. I also like the air bag located in the bow. It is a sweet little boat that literally, depending on which stroke you use, you can turn on a dime. It glides nice, is light, and is really within almost anyone's budget.
