Hi guys and gals. I’m new to kayaking buy loving it so far I’d wanted a kayak for years and finally got one about a year ago. It was a 1980s Fiberglass slalom kayak. ‘‘Twas pink and cost me $50. Paddled it for 10mins and thought this is cool yet damned if I could paddle the bloody thing in a straight line. Back on Trade Me I found a Necky Manitou 13 so snapped that up paddled it twice then saw a QK Tasman Express with all the bits on Facebook for $650 so I thought “hell” I better buy that too 😆. So now I’m hooked yet strangely enough not so much the fishing side.

I paddle mostly in the Waikato river and Raglan Harbour but am keen to explore more. Have a 3 week excursion planned in April and am heading to the South Island so keen to get as many pointers and tips as I can before then.
