Good advice for new kayakers from Maritime NZ

This report suggests there are over 100,000 kayaks of all shapes and sizes in New Zealand.

A small proportion of these belong to kayaking clubs and make this their chosen passion – learning new skills and paddling with groups/clubs for safety and fun.

Most paddlers simply purchase a kayak, PFD (hopefully) paddle and head out to the many beautiful beaches, rivers and estuaries our NZ coastline has to offer.

Without the advice of a recognised specialist kayak retailer some new paddlers may find themselves in trouble at some point.

Please watch this video from Maritime NZ which has some great advice.
