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.

Price: R8 500 f from om Out­door Ware­house. Length: 3.5m | Weight: 35kg
