Hi, I've just rejoined after a year out and am looking for a sea kayak to buy. Something like an Avocet ( I used the club Avocet in 2019) would suit I think. I hope to get one for around 600. Any ideas? Thks

Hi David. You may know this already but...the general guidance is: "try before you buy" - and the more, the better.

Realistically, you'll probably be lucky to get a decent sea kayak for €600.

Thks Leon. I've used the avocet before and it seemed fine. I can go a bit higher than 600. Any suggestions? Would anyone have a kayak to sell or lend to try out? Thks

There is a Facebook page called Sea Kayak Ireland and on it there is a P+H Scorpio kayak for sale for 800e ONO, a good boat. I'd hurry though if interested. I have no connection to it or the owner, I just saw it for sale.

Thks... Had a look.. Its 17.7ft..the avocet I used before was 15.9 I think. May be a bit too long.. Ive a level 2 cert and have done Clare Island etc.. Itd be for round Dublin.. Maybe over to inishboffin etc.

The club has two Romany Sport. New boats. Try one of these out. Roger Waugh, who is a club member is the sole agent in Ireland for all NDK boats and can arrange a demo in any of the NDK boats. As Leon said try before you buy.
