Ask a lot of boat manufacturers to define recreational kayaks, and they’ll toss out stats and pie charts and graphs. For them, that’s the end of the story. Ask us, and we’ll tell you recreational kayaks mean one thing, plain and simple ― fun. We believe we have a responsibility to make recreational kayaks that spread fun across a whole range of paddlers. We want to put smiles on the faces of folks who’ve never held a paddle in their hands (and do it on the first try); and if an experienced paddler slides into one of our Santees, we want him (or her) to be able to carve like mad. In other words, if you aren’t having any fun, we haven’t done our job. So if you’re looking to add a recreational kayak to your fleet or simply get into paddling, you’ve come to the right place. Good to see you. Getkayak trips and lessons alerts in houston ready to have some fun.
