Buying a Kayak for First Time? Know Kayak Types.

Buying a Kayak for First Time? Know Kayak Types.

Kayaking: What to Know When Buying a Kayak - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. My name is Steve Gibons and I am with Scappoose Bay Kayaking here in Oregon. We are an organization that has been here for about the last 11 years, and we are here to help people out in regards to buying kayaks. My understanding is that you would like to know a little bit about kayaks. And the first thing that we always ask people when they are interested in buying a boat is two things. What do you see yourself doing in the kayak? If you are just looking for something that you are going to use a couple times during the summer, well then of course you might not be interested in a larger investment. But if you find, which you will, that you really enjoy kayaking, then there is different degrees of kayaks that you might be interested in buying as well, and it can go right from the very beginning all the way to the more expensive boats. What I mean by that is, is in the early stages, a basic beginner kayak, is what we call a recreational kayak. A recreational kayak is a boat that has a large cockpit, which is what this opening is. It is very easy to get in and out of, it is adaptable to all sizes of kids and adults. It is very stable, it is relatively a little heavier than some other materials. It is made out of a plastic, what we call a milk bottle plastic or a polyethylene plastic, and to keep its structural integrity, because of the material, it has to be made very thick in order to stay strong, and that adds to the weight. So in your basic beginner model kayaks, it will have a tendency to be a little bit heavier but much more stable because of their widths and of their length. As you progress up into different styles of boats based upon your own paddling skills, you might also start working yourself up into boats like we call this a touring-style boat. And a touring-style kayak can still also be made out of the polyethylene material, but you will notice that it is going to be alot thinner, they are going to be a lot longer, it will have a little bit different sized openings to get into the cockpit itself, and they are more for the advanced paddling where you might take yourself out into more adverse conditions or different types of paddling situations. There are some that are sort of a hybrid between the two, and this particular boat, it is a real light-weight kayak, but it does have a large cockpit, so it has a recreational size cockpit and yet the material is a thermal formed material called carbonite. And because of the structure of the material itself is very light-weight. So in this particular boat, it is a little bit more money, but you are getting a large cockpit, you are getting a lighter weight boat, and you are getting a very durable boat as well. The degree of cost varies on the actual material as well. In your recreational style boats you can usually get into a recreational style boat for around $500 to $600, somewhere in that area. There are some that are even less in price but you might find that they are also less in size and they will not necessarily fit you. As you advance up into better quality materials, whether it is stronger or more light-weight, the price also goes up because the material cost more and the construction and the design and everything also increases. So the material styles varies in sizes and also the weight will change based on the material themselves. The reason why I ask what you are going to do with a kayak is because people have a tendency to want to buy the least expensive boat they can to get into and onto the water. And in some cases that boat might be the boat that you will stay with forever. But in my experience for the last 35 years in kayaking, what usually happens is people will like the sport, they will buy an inexpensive boat to get into it, they will paddle that boat around for maybe a summer or so and then realize that they want to paddle more often, they want to go to more places, they want to do more things and in some cases a recreational style boat is not the proper boat for going out into more advanced paddling areas. So they will buy another boat-they can either turn this in a resale or alot of times they will keep it at their garage or at their home or their cabin or whatever for when they are friends come to visit who might not be as paddling-skilled as they have now become, and they will buy an upgrade boat and have a better quality boat to paddle around in.

Kayak Fishing; The Hard Way

Kayak Fishing; The Hard Way

2017 has been a wonderful year. YouTube ad revenue and the generosity of my sponsors have enabled me to enter the world of the fulltime content creator. It's not the ritz, but as long as I don't drive a new truck, or have a mortgage, or health insurance, or...Well, let's just say, it's not for everyone. Perhaps even for me. The end of this year, December in particular has brought a lot of expensive reminders that this ride could end at anytime. Even a 'regular' job is no guarantee for a comfortable life, but social media is really not the most financially responsible occupation. It's fun. But not a retire-able position by any means. So 2018 brings me a question many of us have to ask ourselves; 'What am I gonna do with my life?' And the answer for me is to try and open a business. I am definitely not business savvy which is why I need help. Michael Steen, my friend and former marina neighbor has joined me here at the property and encouraged me to give it a try. As have the folks I rent the property from and a host of others that seem to think that a kayak business is my best bet for a future job. Add to that the people that have encouraged me to make videos over the years and starting 'Zoffinger's' seems like a move that has to be done. As if it would be a slight to fate if I didn't at least try. Reality though, is that opening this location is far more ambitious than I am capable of doing myself. And again, Micheal has stepped forward and taken on the financial needs to get up and running. And there have been a few people that have given generous donations towards making this a reality. My name might be destined for the sign out front, but this is turning into a collaboration of efforts. A business without the contributions of many, that would never be possible. And as of the close of this year approaches, I still wonder if it can be done. Some days it seems an impossible dream. However, I'm sure, should the day come that I'm renting kayaks, having demo days, and tournaments and seminars and meet-n-greets, I STILL won't believe it. I have met many people because of my kayak fishing channel on Youtube. From all walks of life. And the kindness I receive from folks, be them a hard-hitting, successful CEO of a big company, or a youngster who just starting fishing from a kayak, inspires me greatly. And I really want to make this business a reality for all of them. Not just myself. It's tempting though, because it would be the first time in my life that I grew up and tried something that could be financially responsible! LoL. Or, I could land flat on my face, who knows. One thing for sure is that it could give me the chance to meet way more fans and be inspired to create way more interesting videos in the future! Like I said at the end of the video, sharing with people has so far been paid for by my sponsors and ad rev. I gladly give thanks to those that supported me and whose products I believe in. And there are many who have written to me or have sent stuff in the mail in the past that never got thanked. That makes starting a Patreon account a bit unsettling. How do I justify asking for more? The videos were always meant to be free to viewers. And the ability to properly thank everyone, even for a dollar, probably will be impossible. But if we can pull together and get a location up and running, at least folks can see the manifestation of their contributions. The smiles on people's faces that visit and are shown in future videos or people that actually come here and see it for themselves. That, to me, seems worth asking for help on Patreon. I plan on having rewards for Patrons. Either with exclusive content...chances for giveaways...free tee shirts? (if I ever make some) who knows? The account is already open. You can take a look, even if you don't plan on becoming a Patron... www.patreon.com/zoffinger Pelican kayaks have been my biggest supporters for a few years now.
