My favorite kayak was given to me about 20 years ago by my dad who has since died. This whitewater kayak was used by me and my dad many times, and it will always have a special place in my heart. What can I say? I absolutely love kayaking and I hope you try it. Check out http://www.austinkayak.com/category/10/Kayaks-&-Canoes to read more about kayak reviews.
