Another New Kayaker Needs Advice
Hi everyone, I just recently started going whitewater rafting and hopefully soon kayaking. I'm looking for opinions on what the best gear and kayak to get is though.
I'm on the small side I'm only 5'4" and weigh 110lbs and have very limited whitewater experience or experience on the water period for that matter. I have run the yough "loop" at Ohiopyle and the entire lower yough in a guided raft, shredder, and on my own in an airforce but that is the extent of my experience on the water.
I need everything so I'm starting from scratch. I have been using gear from my friend who's uncle owns Ohiopyle Trading Post so once I get up there I'll have plenty of people to teach me and get me going. Just to put it out there they deal primarily with NRS for their rafts and I know they sell PFD's, paddles, etc. so I'm sure I can get stuff from them at a discount or used. Just need recommendations on what to look for.
Also as for the kayak itself I know Daggers and Liquid Logic seems to be pretty popular up there so that's probably what I'll be able to find used most likely but please recommend anything that you guys think would be best for me. Thanks!
