CB at Wally World thinks they deserve a discount because the kayak got wet
TIL about a Documentary called Kadoma. In which 2 American Pro Kayakers and their South African guide attempt the first descent of the Lukuga River in The Democratic Republic of Congo.While filming, the guide was snatched out of his Kayak by a 15fT crocodile and never seen again. mountainfilm.org/media/ka…
Little T went on his first camping trip this weekend at 3 months old! He found out he cannot walk off the kayak and walk on the water, that if he’s polite to the little kids camping next to us they will give him treats, and that sleeping in my sleeping bag while snoring is the best way to relax.
Got to use my tiny kayak cooler for the first time this weekend!
A coffee break in the kayak
Made a false tailgate for easy transport of my kayaks in my hilariously short truck bed. They ride very snugly and I can still throw other stuff in the back!
I felt so loved after my last kayak pic, I thought I'd give you all another. A little more skin this time ☺😉
Traditional Kayak Build - DAY 1: Getting Started - Come with me on a day-by-day journey as I build my own boat over the next 8 days. Description in comments
Getting ready to launch the kayaks, I flicked a popper out to make sure drags and breaks were set right. Then pig.
Note to self: a standard bed fits 5 kayaks perfectly.
Picked up this beauty yesterday. 11’9” fishing kayak, the guy gave me two seats (I took off to wash it), two paddles, two fishing rods, and an egg crate with three rod holders. How much did it cost? $100... I love Facebook marketplace
Finishing 104km race. First kayak race ever! I am so happy :)
Taught my 70 yr old grandma to kayak. She loved it! Happy to have a new paddling buddy.
Hi, I am kayak guide in India. I take participants on Kayaking trip and charge around 7 dollars for 3 hours trip. I also make sure they get pretty pictures 😊
Wife and I were finally able to get kayaks after work Friday. This happened Saturday after work.
I’ve fished a cheap field & stream kayak for 12 years. Finally got a hold of a real fishing rig. Incredibly excited.
Both new to me 4Runner and Kayak. Broke them in for the first time this past weekend. Amazing combination!
All the kayak roof racks were sold out. A a few pieces if 1/4in x 2in aluminum pieces and a bunch of rivets fixed that. Worked great on a hundred mile trip yesterday!
Looking for fishing kayak recommendation! Live on big island and looking to get off the rocks
St Johns bridge from my kayak
"Gua ga mau sok inggris kayak elu soalnya gua cinta Bahasa Indonesia. gak kayak elu!". Your opinion?
Landed this monster today in the new kayak. Didn’t bother grabbing the scale; he’s a 10+ pounder for certain
Finally got a kayak to call my own. Nothing special, but it’s mine.
when you get that 8am text from your buddy asking, “do you have enough kayaks for everyone?”

Here are some images of our adventure!
My two friends and I are high school friends from Vermont who had a real bummer of a final college semester. To make matters worse, all of our summer plans/jobs were cancelled due to COVID-19. So, we decided to make an opportunity of it and go on an adventure!
We wanted an expedition that would challenge us physically and mentally, but would also be realistic. This was our last summer before full time work, so we wanted to make it spectacular. After watching videos by an Australian YouTuber, Beau Miles, who documented his kayak expedition to southern Africa, we were inspired to take up sea kayaking. None of us had any experience kayaking before, but we were

I bought a sea kayak.
Saw it on a small ad website.
Made out of cedar and fiber glass. Sure, what the hell, might as well get it. What do I have to lose?
I know nothing about kayaks. I've done it 3 times prior.
I went to see it. Bought it, no question asked. What the hell do I know about kayaks and shit like that.
Went on the Atlantic Ocean with it. Here's a photo
My biggest fear is water. Open ocean. Sea. Blue sea. Deep water.
So I went over it. I mean, I actively sought to [fucking] destroy this fear. I had to do it at all cost. You do not want to walk this walk on Earth with a burden [an albatross] around your neck full of fears.
Nah, fuck that.
You want to step over them. To conquer them.
For what ocean have we sailed that we didn't drown in?
Ocean of fears. Drown in it.
Ocean of worries. Drown in it.
Ocean of chaos. Drown in it.
We ought to drown in them: just to come back alive like a phoenix, full metanoia style, back from the ashes that lashes

Got the truck, got the rack, finally got the kayaks!
First piggie in the kayak
A curious otter hitched a quick ride on my Dad's kayak in Moss Landing Harbor.
Finally made the switch from kayak to raft so I guess I have to leave the sub now :) Yesterday was her maiden voyage and it was a success. I still have a lot of tweaking to do but it was an excellent first day ... 9 bass and 6 bluegill, including a 2.78 lb largemouth the close out the day.
2001 Outback first kayak adventure. The factory crossbars are rock solid 🙌🏻
Father’s Day came early. Wife and my boys got me hooked up with my first kayak.
Brendan Morrison here. I thought you all might enjoy this video of outtakes from when Willie Mitchell and I caught a halibut out of kayaks in Alaska. It wasn't pretty, but we got the job done! youtu.be/eg12TtaNIbM
Two canoes, a kayak and a handful of 1980s Danish scouts who didn't want to paddle. Sailing can take many forms.
I've found a used kayak! I'm so stinking excited! Now how to unfold this thing?! Off to You Tube! 😂
Siapa juga yang megang keyboard kayak gitu? ._.
Who else Kayaks for the sunsets?
$25 kayak storage I made today.
There’s a baby duck in Alton Baker with a fish hook stuck in his beak. If anyone has kayaks and can catch him in a box I’d be willing to drive it to Chintimini Wildlife Center in Corvallis for help.
My latest Watercolor painting from the kayak. Rideau River Canada.
Went to buy a kayak and came back with Augustus Gustavo instead, but we just call him Gus Gus.
Storm rolling in yesterday Stonybrook Harbor Kayak launch site
We saved and budgeted, only to start shopping when kayaks are the HOT thing on the market. But they're all ours now. Maiden voyage.
TODAYS THE DAY, BONERS (also my kayak gets here today! Big day!) ((Also June 20th might still have some Boneworks reveals so ???)
My first fish EVER! And it was my first time kayak fishing. Such a cute little baby bass, he deserves to be flaunted.
Quarantine puppy’s first kayak trip :)
Using my own personal (inflatable) kayak in SF
I live close to SF downtown and I wanted to check if there is any place close to me eg: mission creek where I can use my own kayak. (with the annual membership or equivalent), I found that Sausalito (Seatrek) has an annual rental program costing 6xx ish which I am not willing to subscribe for.
I am interested in longer kayaking trips around SF area as a recreation which is something I did when I was a student in my university.
1 kayak, 2 inflatable paddleboards, 3 bikes, gear and food for 4 people, 4 days 3 nights. Nailed it
Watauga River in my $129 kayak!
Where to buy a Kayak
My husband and I are looking into getting kayaks for the summer, but haven’t ever really looked into them before. What are some of the things we need to know and look for when purchasing? And what places are best to buy from? Currently we are mostly looking at dicks sporting goods. Thank you in advanced!
Edit: we will mostly be using it for lake and calm river kayaking, maybe the Chesapeake Bay in the future too. Sorry I didn’t include that before. Like I said, I’m really just starting to research things and I hadn’t realized that was part of the variations of kayaks I was seeing.
Thank you to everyone who’s commented, this has been so, so helpful!
This drain in the middle of a lake. People kayak here, and it’s only marked with one or two buoys. Imagine not paying close enough attention...
Got this kayak off Craigslist, restored and painted it. Time lapse video in the comments
I've been called redneck by my spouse for making this simple kayak rack for my pickup truck
First kayak ever! Can’t wait to start fishing on it! (Evoke Breakaway 125)
A girl can post a simple selfie and get thousands of likes. Just figured I'd post this pic of my little sister on my new kayak
Someone doesn't understand how kayaks work
Any where near Chicago that has kayak trails?
I used to go to college back at Champaign where we had Kickapoo state park with a great river trail. Anywhere near Chicago area that I can find such activities? Ideally up to 1hr 30 min by car is fine
Gomy first kayak last week but havent been able to go until today. First time ever wish me luck
First bass off my kayak, I guess I don’t need a fishing boat after all.
Reishi haul from last weeks kayak trip. About 14lbs worth.
First time on a kayak and my first fish. This was the most fun I’ve had fishing in a long time!
I made a custom false tailgate yesterday for hauling kayaks in my 2002 double cab. Easy to load/unload and I can still use the rest of the bed for other gear.
Craigslist kayaks really changed up our weekends. Manatee County, Florida.
My ideal setup for kayak camping
My stress level is through the roof. My brother told me to buy a kayak. I honesty thought it was an expensive, impractical idea. Can’t remember the last time I was so relaxed and calm. The problems just disappeared the moment I hit the water. It’s like a different world.
Bought my first kayak! Loving every minute of it, don't know how I didnt get into this sooner living in such a beautiful place. (PA)
Taught my 70 year old grandma to kayak. She loved it! Now I have a new paddling buddy!
Has anyone done any multi-day kayak or canoe trips in Newfoundland?
Looking for something inland on fresh water
Probably only 2-3 days
Would love to camp but if there are options with towns mid-way then that is also fine
Portaging not a deal-breaker but if it can be avoided then that's better
Bit windy today but caught some great waves in the kayak 😁♥️
Yippee Kayak Other Buckets!
Taking the kayak plunge any advice?
Rivers to kayak?
Hi all, I got a kayak this spring and have been loving getting out on all the lakes around here. I didn't know if anyone had recommendations for rivers they like to paddle in the kc area? I would consider myself a beginner kayaker but do have canoe experience in current. The kaw and Missouri seem like obvious choices but I am not sure how padding upstream against current would be. Ideally I'd like an area I can put in and experience current in the new boat without being in a dangerous situation.
Made my self a fishing kayak tonight yes I know its ramshak but I love it
First time trying this. My intent was twins. It gave me a point on the lake. Decided to grab the kayak and check it out anyway. Look at what was waiting for me right off the edge of the designated location. Twin deer fawns!
Ollie's favorite pink kayak 😁💗💦 #theadventuresofashandollie
My Oru kayak's maiden voyage!
My first pedal kayak! Can’t wait to take it out today
My pupper Tito is fighting cancer. Decided to take him out on the kayak today, at Carter’s Lake, Calhoun, GA.
