The Inflatable Kayak For This Summer 0

Posted on June 17, 2021 by Sarah Lefort

We always look forward to the summer vacations but this year more than the previous ones. After being confined, we want to enjoy the fresh air and move. The kayak is perfect for that. However, owning a kayak is not always practical. Have you thought about an inflatable kayak? Ideal for people who want to go on occasional trips but don’t have the space to carry or store a rigid kayak. Did you ever give it a go?

What is the difference between an inflatable and a rigid kayak?

Inflatable kayaks are generally made of PVC, while rigid kayaks are made of fiberglass and carbon.

Inflatable kayaks are, contrary to what one might think, durable. Advances in production methods have led to extremely sturdy kayaks. High quality PVC kayaks are resistant to collisions and even sharp-edged objects such as dog claws.

The advantage of the inflatable kayak is that it can be easily transported and also stored. It takes up little space and is lighter in weight. Most inflatable kayaks can be carried in a bag, a trunk or even a boat. In just 10 minutes, your kayak will be ready for use in the water.

By the end of the season, Griffin had rushed for 867 yards.
