New to the Sport...where to begin?

Hey y'all...

I've been interested in getting into boating for a few years now but haven't gotten around to it. I know for certain that I am not letting another season go by without getting in the water.

This looks the place to be to get the needed info...

I am 6ft. about 208lbs and a size 11.5 shoe. I am athletic and have some experience paddling on waves in Costa Rica.

What do you recommend for potential boats? I am aiming at doing all used stuff to keep the cost down for now.

I look forward to anyone's advice?

Carbondale, CO

Take classes that provide gear. A good way to try the greatest sport and different gear before you drop a lot of cash. Classes will start and keep your learning curve going in the right direction. Kayaking is a blast (some people are dyslexic at first upsidedown underwater but don't let that stop you)! There is a shop in Edwards or Avon called Alpine something that's in your area. Colorado Kayaking web site is for intro and II III boaters. Have fun.
