Where to start

I just got back from West Virginia where I rafted the Upper Gauley and I have rafted the Ocoee many times in the past. I really want to get a kayak to start using on some easier rivers to try out. Can someone direct me to a place I can find an inexpensive one that would be good for starting out the sport? By the way, since I live in Pensacola, there isn't really anything on craigslist. Thanks

...they can answer any gear questions you might have, and can ship you pretty much anything you could need for paddling...try and join a local paddling club, and/or find a local outfitter and take a lesson...don't paddle alone. Good luck and welcome to the best sport on the planet.
