I love this inflatable kayak. It’s so sporty and unique. Bang for the buck.
Great price but stable and sturdy kayak. Also durable, lightweight and compact. My wife and I paddle it together (about 390 lbs with our), and it floated and tracked well.
Easy to haul, easy to store and easy to row. Perhaps more surprising.The paddle can be separated into three pieces, so you can put them into travel bags.
Just a tip: If you want the kayak to go straight, buy it together with a skeg.

I’m a kayaking enthusiast who had three boats before I bought it. Include a wooden canoe, fiberglass canoe and a 2 person Coleman inflatable kayak.
Previously, If I want to go kayaking, fishing,camping by myself.The wooden one and fiberglass one are too heavy to carry. The 2 person one didn’t track well for me, So I was looking for a light one, a 1 person kayak, I love it which is so much fun.

Coleman QuikPak K5 Kayak
I like the kayak. I’m out for kayaking and fishing every weekend with my wife.
It’s easy to put together and take apart. Even my wife can do it all by herself. Easy to carry. She can carry the pack on my back and walk a long trip and not feel a thing. It’s amazing how small they fold up.
The paddle works great even in rough waters.
I have ever paddled it in shallow and rocky streams. Glides over the rocks at ease, which displays an outstanding elasticity and toughness.
Many other inflatable kayaks I’ve ever used can’t compare to this one for comfort and handling.
The backpack can be transformed into the seat and splash apron, an ingenious design.
I usually use it for fishing with my fishing gear, fishing pole and an anchor.
The storage area in the back is big enough for me to hold my gears.
Deflating the kayak and packing it up into the backpack is a breeze. And then I leave it in the car or garage, take into consideration the temperature, humidity and ventilation inside a building.
Some people think that it is a little inconvenient to hold the hose with one hand and pump with the other.
But I think they are okay
It’s the best kayak to anyone who can’t store or transport a solid one.
The kayak preformed as advertised, it’s a breeze to assemble and disassemble! Easy to use.

Pink Emotion Bliss Kayak
My parents retired to Florida so they could be close to friends and family roughly four years ago. During those four years they have spent plenty of time with friends and family that enjoying kayaking. While my mom enjoys being on the water, she wasn’t a fan of the kayaks that my aunt and uncle have because they are too big for her.
My aunt and uncle are over six and half feet tall and have been kayaking for over twenty years, while my mom is five feet tall – in heals and has less than three years of kayaking experience.
After her forth summer in Florida it became apparent that her wanting to Kayak was not something that was going to go away. She had been talking to my dad about getting kayaks so they wouldn’t have to go to my uncles house all of time, but my dad wanted to make sure that the kayaks were going to be used on a regular basis and not just when the grand kids came to visit.
With my mom’s birthday approaching we visited a few shops, including some of the big box sporting good stores as well as doing some research on-line to learn about the different kayaks. We found a few videos on-line, including some for the Emotion Bliss Kayak that we shared with my uncle to get his advice on since he has been kayaking for over twenty-years.
So we finally ordered my mom a pink Emotion Bliss Kayak for her sixty-fifth birthday once we learned more about its design, the fact that it’s light weight, the features, and the big factor that is was designed for someone with a small frame.
My mom was thrilled that not only was she able to get the kayak on and off the rack by herself, but her “little pink kayak” (as she likes to call it) was “Her Size”. She felt more secure on the water with her feet being able to reach the foot braces and when she went out the first day she had it, she kept saying “I’m not bumping my elbows!”
Another nice thing about getting my mom the Emotion Bliss Kayak is that the wait is over. She’s able to get the kayak into the water by herself and since it’s her size, she doesn’t have to work that hard to keep up with the rest of her friends and family without banging her elbows when she paddles; which makes going out on the water more enjoyable. I love my mom, but hearing about her elbows hurting made me want to scream.
If you or someone you know loves being on the water, but are having a hard time with the current kayak, it could be that the kayak is too big for your frame. You should consider looking into the Emotion Bliss Kayak which has been designed specifically for smaller framed kayakers, both the young and the young at heart.
Love you mom!

Sprint racing canoeing
Kayak paddling technique, core components
Set up- is a movement after the end of the stroke to prepare the paddle and the body for the next stroke.
Set up is a core paddling action, vital for efficiency of water work and the rhythm of paddling.
Set up start when the athlete finishes propelling the boat.
The top hand holds the paddle in position after the previous stroke, while the bottom hand moves up to ear level.
This front hand ‘pausing ’ between the strokes is a key requirement for an efficient set up.
It marks the change of the paddling side and allows the control of following movements and the rhythm of paddling.
The pulling hand comes up rotating, taking your knuckles to the ear, maintaining the elbow angle around 90 degrees.
This time the trunk and hips over – rotates setting up the stroke on the opposite side and providing good boat glide.
Set up finishes when the shaft passes horizontal position and the muscles fully switched to the stroke on opposite site. The trunk finishes a ‘pendulumlike’ rotational movement.
Proper set up is relevant and achievable for the athletes of any performance level.

Lifetime Daylite Kayak
I am new to kayaking so I want a boat that cheap and affordable, quality.
I bought this one because it was cheaper, has a dry compartment and adjustable seat, and it came with everything I needed.
I was overjoyed to buy it. I used it for fishing. Great stability, but not much speed, not right for competition, there are spots for 2 fishing poles, great for fishing, pond, river, stream, lake, bay fishing.
This kayak came with oars and carrying sling, Better yet, has a molded handle in the side of the unit that makes it so easy to transport.
It tracks very well. Easy to steer, I had no problems loading it into my car by myself and unloading it. How well it fits inside my compact car.
Light and easy to store, it stands straight up in my garage, saving space, I ordered a sail for additional recreational fun.
Once I took my 240 pound dad out with me for fishing, it held us perfect! Paddle at ease.
Wear gloves when you paddle with the oars included so as to avoid getting blisters, because there are no grips on it.
All of my friends like it, they want to purchase, its small and light enough to transport but big and stable enough for two persons.
This is an outstanding kayak!
