Choosing the Right Kayak for Your Paddling Goals – Greg Whittaker, Mountain to Sound Outfitters and Alki Kayak Tours
Paddling is a lifelong sport whether you pick it up when you’re seven or seventy-seven, and choosing your first kayak is an exciting decision! We are always thrilled when we get people in the earlier realm of that spectrum, but we help a ton of folks get into their sport after they have finished their working career and are looking for easy and affordable ways to spend the day on the water.
