Modern era kayaks are the Inflatable fishing kayak. People are preferring them as you know they are portable, handy and they can be carried to whatever the place it is necessary to. With them, you don’t hire an extra pair of muscle or you don’t need to hire no truck or a van, all you need is to carry the portable folding kayak in your bag pack and be on your way. This option is convenient as in the old day’s people tend to avoid kayaking because it poses a lot of trouble i.e. to lift from the location, put it in the truck, drive it to the kayaking point and then unload it put it in the water and after you have done kayaking repeat the same process in the reverse order. This is hectic and difficult and you at least need 2 to 3 people to perform this job of yours. But now all this has been wrapped up into a single bag-pack. All you have to take your bag-pack to the location of kayaking and then open the bag fill the Air into the PVC or Nitrylon made kayak and then go with your family or a friend for kayaking. On return, all you have to do is to release the Air from the kayak and then fold it and put it in your bag and be on your way. This is how simple the technology has made our lives. We can now have the fun at our own expense i.e. we don’t need no one’s help all we need to do is to gather our things and went for kayaking that’s it.
This sport is getting popularity day by day as you know that it can be done solo as well as by a team of people so because of this people who like a silent environment can go alone whereas people who are chatty and want to have a social conversation can take their partner with them.
It is designed to meet the needs of every class of personnel out there and because of its leniency in this field, it is preferred over the other kayaks. One more thing tends to buy a smaller inflatable kayak if you wish to travel alone because for 1 person smaller is easy to handle and control.
Some Drawbacks of the inflatable Kayaks:
- Although it is designed by keeping in view all the necessities but still as it is an inflatable kayak there is always the risk of getting a leak in the hull and drowning. The main reason for getting a leak is that with time the kayak’s surface begins to wear down i.e. becomes weak and to avoid this i.e. sinking etc. it is preferred to go for a kayak with multiple Air-chambers.
- These kayaks are not as durable and long-lasting as that of hard-shell kayaks. The material of construction uses in making the inflatable kayaks tend to lose their toughness after some time and then you will see leaks appearing at different places which are needed to be repaired immediately with the help of a professional.
