I can see the RNLI being busy this summer

The Kayak looks good.

They look great but most beaches have banned inflatables, I tried to use my inflatable 2 man boat at a couple of beaches near st ives but the coast guards come racing over to stop you putting it in the water, another time the police arrived and started shouting "get here now" i was only about 30 yards from the shore, started giving me dressing down about how i could be wasting the coastguards time.

Banned

Surely it's a public area and your other breaking the law you can do it if you want? It is just against advice?

That simply isn't true the RNLI can't ban anything they have no power to control what you do (without your permission)! they can only offer advice and as for the police they couldn't stop you unless you where endangering life then they might get involved and arrest you for your own safety. Lol which they may or may not need to do!

Pop goes the weasel!

Honestly, how many Aldi customers need a three metre kayak?

Can't see us needing this in Croydon at the mo

Hot!

Sure I saw something very similar to this being sold in ASDA for £250 this weekend - I nearly fell over.
I didn't check the specs, it was only on passing, but this seems like a great price!

You'd be better off asking ALDI that question as they'll be able to check how many they sold after the event.

Just out of interest, which supermarket's customers do you think would be more suited to inflatable kayaks? You appear to be looking down your nose at aldi customers - are they not allowed near water?

Wish I would use one! Good deal, heat

Why do they sell inflatables in the beach shops then?

Inflatable one man kayak would be awesome. This is more of a dinghy.

You do realise that there are two products don't you? One is a family boat and the other is a kayak

30 yards out might be 10 yards away from a rip current at that beach. If you are going out in the sea you need to know the currents otherwise use it in a lake or a shallow river. We took a £10 Argos sale inflatable out on the river tees last summer. It got a hole in it after 10 seconds but we had fun paddling about for an hour, and with the puncture repaired will use it again this summer.

No I didn't, not very clear on the phone. Thanks!

Might get one for this year's camping trips.

LOL comes with a splash proof bag ha ha and also "dinghy" what an excellent word. Heat added Great Deal ! ! !

The problem is tourist come down, and like mention, dont know the rip currents.The next thing your know, your either be on your way to america, or you might have drown trying to fight the rip current. Also most inflatables dont stand up for strength. Do your self a favor and just buy a second hand surf ski

A good investment for when it snows. Cheap sledge with a high chance of breaking necks and limbs

spend all yer Holiday blowing it up ...then have to come home.....

But the council can, and the life guards on duty are employed by said council...
This has nothing to do with the RNLI, I don't know why you mentioned them

Reminds me of Bullseye when they used to give away a speedboat to someone living in a high rise in Birmingham.

Judging by the smell of the store I went to once, I'd say a good number of customers there hadn't seen water for several weeks.

Huge difference between a thin vinyl kayak that will be all soft and bendy and pop on a twig and a 'proper' inflatable kayak that has the inflatable bladders inside a thick nylon weave so you can blow it up really hard and drag it over rocks. I wouldn't take this one further than a swimming pool.

I'm not looking down my nose at anybody. I fail to see the necessity for any supermarket to sell this kind of stuff.

After all, Tesco's demise is partly due to it diversifying and failing to serve its core customer base. In Aldi's case, that would be people who do not buy Kayaks.

If decathlon started selling groceries, would you do a weekly shop there whilst buying some sport equipment?

Probably because the RNLI took over beach lifeguards years ago - councils in the South West, at least, do not employ beach lifeguards anymore.

Where the hell have you been all these years. Aldi and Lidl have always had weekly non-food specials - alongside their cheap food offerings, it's practically their raison d'etre and until the UK supermarkets stuffed up, a lot of people I know used to just go in for certain goods and then gradually have also started doing most of their shopping there.

The original post mentioned the coast guard, not the RNLI anyway so he was a bit mixed up... In Wales the beach patrol/life guards are employed/paid for by the council in conjunction with RNLI.
I had a very quick glance at other areas and it seems to be the same at most of the councils I came across, including the south west and south coast of England. The councils make the rules and they are applied by their employees, whether that be the RNLI or direct council employees. So they do have some jurisdiction (depending on council rules/byelaws)...

The rear spraydeck / seat ripped on our first outing. Aldi refunded the cost with no problems. I have now purchased a better quality kayak as you really can't expect great durability for £39. Aldi kayak remains good value for a taster of boating.

I have looked all over and my friends are keeping an eye out for this but we have not found any in store. Did anyone else?

Took two aldi kayaks to the beach for the first time. One would not inflate at the base, when i got into the other one the plastic connecting the rear seat ripped apart. Would not recomend these, but they do look good .
