WTB kids kayak

My 8 year old has mastered the sit on top and we think she’s ready for a hard side that can handle bigger waves and we can teach her to roll.
Please help us get this gymnast river runner a good boat to start. Thought I found one on Craigslist, but she didn’t answer for 4 days and said sold, it was a Jackson fun 1 1/2 with skirt hat would have been great.
Thanks and hope all is well!
Jon

My girls had a Fun 1.5 at that age, yes, that would be a good size.


The Remix 47 is also a good boat in that size range (way different hull, of course)

I’d love one too if anyone knows of any collecting dust or being outgrown.

My guess is you're too big for one, but not having met you, I don't know for sure.

bwahahahaha


Sorry, I donated mine to the local kids kayak program. It's been fun teaching other kids to paddle in the boats my girls once learned in.

Parent tip: DO NOT push your daughter too far, too fast. Kayaking is a lifetime sport. I didn't push mine, but I really encouraged their progress. They still went too fast and got scared at age 9-10 in some easy Class III's and decided kayaking wasn't for them.
