I'm in Perth Western Australia and this is my first post.
I'm very new to the sport and i'm seeking to buy my first kayak.
Living 15 minutes from the Indian Ocean & 30 minutes from the Swan river gives me some lovely places to go but I think I will be on the ocean more than the river so I'm looking for a sea kayak.
Your opinions and views will be of great value as I'm sure you will all know there's a lot to chose from out there and according to all the brands 'theirs is the best' ! ( of course )
I'm 84 kgs, 1.8m tall and wish I was younger but hey still fit
Ive been advised to look for - as light as possible, minimum 5mts, decent beam for stability but not too much as it will be a bugger to paddle !
That leaves about 100 boats to choose from !
Ill be interested in hearing back from anyone with there experiences and thoughts !
Good paddling -

Done mainly rivers and lakes with my wife but now introducing her to open water. We are both comfortable in water and really enjoy getting and camping. At present about to embark on
a weeks trip around Hinchinbrook Island.
Our kayak is equipped with handheld marine radio, Garmin gps, compass and Epirb. Before each sea trip we log onto the local marine rescue guys and let them know our movements.
Maybe see some of you out there.

Always keen to welcome fellow Kiwi's to the forum. Despite most of the followers of the forum being Aussies they are all good blokes....
Now would seem like a good time to mention the Bledisloe, but I guess we should wait until we have both hands on it, great first game though.
For someone starting out with sea kayaking you will a wealth of knowledge on the forum and not too much bullshitGR
