airfusion evo kayak

“After doing a bit of kayaking in our younger days, as grey nomads we thought it would be nice to be able to paddle as we travel round. Due to space constraints an inflatable kayak was the logical solution, however I thought it would be at best a bit of a compromise. Well I was very wrong, this is great kayak, stable, fast, easy to paddle, all the things you would expect of a tradition kayak and then it packs away into a bag, that is easy to stow away at the end of the day. Brilliant product. Would recommend it for any couple wanting to spend some pleasant hours on the water.
