    I bought the 2 seater back in September from Groupon (its still available there) for about $115 delivered using a 15% off code and 20% Cashback. Shipping is $10.

    Kayak works well, great quality for the price. Paddles are surprisingly rebust for something that can be dissasembled.

    You'll need a life jacket (not included) to use it on public waterways. Work that into your budget.

      State laws vary.

        Which state doesn't mandate life jackets?

        • +6 votes

          Here in WA it is only in open waters, more than 400m from shore.

          Not my job to research the whole country, but I do hate it when Sydney people think the whole country must be the same.

          If your boat sinks in the Canning or Swan River, you can walk to shore 😀 mandating life jackets would be stupid.

            @manic: WA and qld are the only two exceptions. All other states (not a Sydney thing!) require lifejackts irrespective of the distance from shore.

            So most people (~80%) will need to factor in life jackets as per my original comment! Not a big deal, they are inexpensive….. I bought a couple from anaconda at $30 each.

    maybe, will try

    I thought: That looks cool, I could chuck it in my campervan, mega fun!

    Then I saw this kid in one, as a 6'1" well built guy I have my doubts it would be too practical for me ;(

    (I do have the urge to go paddle UK's canals in a real kayak though)

    is it safe for waterways with bull sharks? Asking for a friend

    • +3 votes

      If the shark decides to take a bite at the kayak, then obviously its teeth will puncture the kayak and cause it to sink. If you still haven't made it to shore yet then the shark will most likely take another bite at you. Once you start bleeding, the shark will go into a freeze and take lots of bites and then your health and safety will be under serious pressure.

      If it was in area with a known large Bull shark population I would personally not use an inflatable.

      Here is some more information that might be useful. http://www.topkayaker.net/Articles/NatureIssues/sharks.htm

      Perth has bull sharks, but unlike the dolphins, they are rarely seen.
      It never stopped anyone boating or swimming. There was one death about a century ago.

    I bought one from BCF for $99 last week when they're on special. I have used it twice in canning river (WA) . I absolutely love it. Never owned kayak or done kayaking before.

    If you try and add the expired code SALE30 to the checkout it will give you a 7% discount as courtesy. I guess stack with cash back as well?

    Great kayak but super hot plastic … So bear that in mind if you are outdoor at temperature above 30s

    Not only has mine not shipped, I logged in to check tracking today and:
