And in the beginning there is the birth of an idea ‘kayaking looks like awesome fun!’ Shortly following by the growing realization that you know absolutely nothing about kayaking even less what kind of kayak would be right for you! I mean…a kayak is a kayak right? You sit on it or in it and paddle to get where you’re going right? And…maybe a life jacket and possibly a helmet might be required too?
Then you do a bit of research and find out that, actually, no…there’s just a teensy bit more to it than that and there are quite a few different types and brands of kayak depending on whether you want to kayak on whitewater, flat water or sea. Add to that the other gear that you will need to get and you could get into some serious spending only to find that you’ve gone and got the wrong boat for you!
For anyone completely new to kayaking the Fatyak™ sit on top kayaks offer a great starting point. Our comfy sit on top kayaks are easy to paddle due to their fantastic engineering and design providing stability and safety for users of all ages and abilities.

In fact they are so user friendly that they are the perfect choice for both absolute beginners and children alike!
The other great point to be made in favor of the Fatyak™ Kayaks is that they are a fantastic ‘all-rounder’. You can’t go wrong! Their hull design is perfect for both adventure and play so you explore the possibilities and find out what kind of water you love best without breaking the bank!
