Kayaks can be a stiff hull or inflatable; inflexible kayaks are nearly constantly made from polyethylene, while inflatables are constructed from a PVC product. The majority of people choose a rigid hull, as they are much more steady as well as more resistant to damages. Inflatable kayaks have their advantages, however: they are much lighter as well as for that reason less complicated to transport (an inflatable kayak is normally concerning the dimension of a traveling bag when deflated). Inflatable kayaks usually have a pump of some sort, so they could be easily transferred to the water as well as pumped up at arrival.
With that in mind, consider where you will be angling. If you intend on visiting the ocean, which needs mostly straight-line traversing distances with couple of turns, a long and also narrow kayak is more suitable. If you plan on angling in a smaller lake or creek, a much shorter, wider kayak is the method to go.
