Hmm maximum weight is 2 skinny men. I'll use that as a reason not to buy this unnecessary item

Have been looking at getting one of these a while, description states rivers but not seas, anyone got any experience with these on the shoreline?

I saw a couple down the beach with one of these, they struggled to go in any direction, waste of money in the sea, think u need water flowing in one direction I.e. River so u can use your paddle just to guide it

109.48 now? Sorry. Just saw code. Doh!

One of the reviews on Amazon says not to use it on rough seas unless "very brave" - I'd probably add "and at least a bit stupid" to that. If something goes wrong, you'll be donating to RNLI for the rest of your life... if you're lucky.

If you're going out on the sea beyond standing depth, don't go in something that might suddenly stop floating.

Like these pair of idiots: Home made boat

I read in one of the papers that when one of the guys was asked about having no life jackets, he said we couldn't afford them. But that one **** was able to afford a stupid tattoo on his neck.

Had one of these, it's a toy not a kayak. Sent straight back. Save your money or buy a Sevylor. Cold at any price.

Personally I wouldn't head out to sea on any inflatable (even a Sevylor) kayak! Either way, this one is cheap for a reason!

Which would you recommend? They're also 20% off on amazon.

The Colorado is a good one. I have an Advanced Elements dual seat which I have used in the surf and on rivers. The basic need is for the tubes to be in Nylon covers so that the tube inflates against the shape of the cover and keeps it shape. More than one inflation chamber is nice to have. The cheap ones deform if over pressured or even left out in the sun. Also the nylon covers make them much more resistant to punctures. Unfortunately, they are a fair bit more expensive.

Two kayakers were paddling down the river, when they hit a concrete wall. One looked at the other and said, dam!

Average weight of a male in the UK is 83.6kg, 70.2kg for female. So would take an average weight male and average weight female (plus some beers). I think some HUKD people don't realise they're a bit fatty

Yes, but they're all dead!

ive been kayaking for over 14 years
and kayaked all over scotland uk Europe
im a 3 star sea kayker
3 star open canoeist
4 star river leader
and in my opinion anybody thats a craft like this on the sea or down a river
better have good life insurance
because your going to need it
this is no more than uprated lilo
and is basically crap
what price do you put on your life guys
I wouldn't go near it with a barge poll

Can you recommend an alternative? How much do you need to spend to get something considered good by a pro?

Agreed!

So is this one any good?

It would certainly be better quality than the Intex, but having seen this model in Go Outdoors it hasn't got the covered tubes. It will likely be tricky to steer, but would be fine on a lake or river on a fine day with light winds.

So is this one any good?


Having used the Intex K1, and seen the Sevylor Riviera, there isnt much between them quality wise. The Intex however sits lower so doesn't catch the wind so much, has a skeg which makes controlling it easier, better seats, and comes with two decent oars and a pump. That would be my choice, but I did like the backpack system of the Sevylor.

Well considering this pic shows it in what looks like a paddling pool, anyone who takes it out to sea is just helping to relieve the worlds over population!!!


Cheap price for this fancy boys toy so heat added!

Surely this will be treated like a lilo....just for a bit of casual paddling around.....I can't see many people attempting a solo crossing of the Atlantic ocean in it..

Great for when it floods, bobbing down the high street whilst even all them Beemers sits lifeless

I bought one of these a couple of years ago and ended up sending it back with great relief.

On 1st use it almost caused marital breakdown as we could just not get the thing to go anything like in a straight line - it was just far too lightweight. Anyway, on the conclusion of said expedition up a small, calm river to a pub, I tied it up whilst we enjoyed a few drinks but on returning to the bobbing banana most of the air had leaked out so when OH stepped in it, the thing just collapsed in on itself with her sandwiched in the middle!

She was ready to leave it and throw it in the bin, but no way, I got it out, found one of the seams was leaking, deflated it and carried it back on the footpath whilst OH stayed in the pub. It went back to Amazon the next day.

Bought one of these last summer from Amazon.de as they were sold out here. Haven't used it on a river but on a canal it is faultless. Takes 10 minutes to inflate with the pump and we re-inflate it at home to dry it out before using a vacuum to suck all the air out and fold it into the bag. Bought a couple of buoyancy aids from amazon for a decent price prior to use.

As above, don't buy these expecting to be able to explore the North West passage - they are a glorified beach dinghy! Fine for inland lakes ......if there's no wind. ..... and very very sheltered beaches.... on a calm day......going downhill!!!

Fine for posing on the beach though!

I was going to vote this hot but then I remember the old saying "You can't have your kayak and heat it" so I didn't.

Heat added

Great for when i take a bath

Wow, if this gets 400 degrees at £87.58, all I can say is.......GET IN DAMN QUICKLY!!!!

Amazon just reduced them to £67.65, making them just £54.12 after the 20% discount!!!!

hehe

I looked into this loads, basically this is more or less classed as a toy and you cannot even use in certain rivers as not to the BS standard required. I purchased a Sevylor Colorado in the end and the quality is unreal, about £239 was cheapest, but it will last years and the resale value is very high on them if looked after.
