Kayaks can have different characteristics to suit different uses. Long, narrow kayaks are faster, which is great on lakes or on the sea. Short kayaks, on the other hand, are faster to turn and easier to handle, which is a good feature when out on the river. A V-shaped hull makes a kayak more stable in your chosen direction of travel, easily cutting through the waves, but it won’t be as straightforward to turn. A flat-bottomed hull, on the other hand, gives it more stability, but reduces the benefit of directional stability. That is why flat-bottomed kayaks have skegs, a fin-shaped blade that helps the vessel track a straight course. Rent your kayak from €20 a day and don’t forget the accessories you’ll need to get the most out of your day on the water!
