Lake Anna is great for kayaking...So great that my kids are urging me to do it. So far I have not but I am really tempted and have been looking at kayaks.
My son, Marc, is enjoying the sport as are other members of our family. Everyone that has tried it loves it and wants to continue doing it.
Marc Kayaking at Lake Anna
Now if I felt as comfortable and confident as Marc does I would probably be out on Lake Anna right now kayaking. But I am still toying with the idea. In fact I even ventured into a shop right by my office where Chris McCotter sells kayaks. One suggestion Chris made that really has me thinking is whether I would want a sit in or a sit on. Who knew?
The sit on is easier to get in (on?) and out (off?) of and Chris thought that that might be the best one for me. Anything that would make it easier is a plus in my book. I like the personal service Chris provides and if I become brave enough that is where I will be shopping.
My son received a Perception Sport Rhythm for Father's Day and has found it to be very comfortable, stable, pretty fast, and nice to maneuver. It is a 10', 41 lb. and fairly easy to handle when transporting it from their home in Richmond to our's here at the lake. It can support up to 250 lbs. These are some of the features:
- Zone Seat
- Zone Knee/Thigh Pad
- Kayak Karrier Handles
- Keepers Foot Brace System
- Stern Hatch
- Bungee Deck Rigging
- Stern Bulkhead
What's great about kayaking is that all ages can enjoy it. Guess that even includes me.
