Put some muscle into it
Ok, so you already own the luxury caravan, a Waverunner and a quad bike… but you’re still missing the other essential toy every person of the outdoors needs in his or her quiver. Some kayaks are built for fishing, some for solo paddling, and others with tandem seats for the family. The family option is usually best seeing it’s suitable for solo paddles as well as two, for someone to keep you company when paddling on a dam or river; and the kids won’t squabble over whose turn it is next. The Feel Free Gemini 11 can accommodate either solo paddlers or two people, and if you’re up for it, even three people with a seat for the third person in the front of the boat. The kayak has two rubber hatches with mesh bags to keep your stuff dry, as well as a keel wheel for easy transport from the water’s edge and to your vehicle, so you don’t put your back out heaving it above your shoulders when trying to load it onto your vehicle. Lightweight aluminium paddles cost R780 a piece and are not included with the kayak. Fun factor: sundowners on the water and you’ll save on fuel when keeping the bass boat docked.
