Paddling Gear You Can Make For The Do-It-Yourself And Poverty-Strricken Paddler


Kayaking is NOT a cheap sport. Unlike hiking which you can do by tossing some water bottles and a few sandwiches in your kids school backpack, Kayaking requires the purchase of a boat ($500-$1500), a PFD ($50-$150) and a paddle ($50-$100) at the minimum! So it’ll cost you between $600 and $2k just to start the sport.
