Best purchase yet

So far, this is the best purchase we've made....we bought an inflatable kayak.  It's awesome.  We already have a surfing kayak which is basically only useful to Andy.  Every time I get in the thing, I go around in circles (and I've been practicing for 10 years).  So we bought an inflatable, two seater, sea through bottom kayak.  VERY COOL.  I figure it's a full body workout.... I have to use my legs to pump the thing up with the manual pump (I haven't yet figured out why I can't use the fancy new compressor to do this for me) and then I use my arms and back to paddle my 45 lb kid around.  I should be back to my 20 something body in no time (insert eye roll here).  Amazingly enough, Jake is getting the hang of it too.  He spent an afternoon in it and after 30 minutes was paddling the neighbor's dog around in the empty slip across from us.  Can't wait to test this thing out for real!

Editors note:  We interrupt this very important blog post for a special notification.  At midnight tonight pacific time, Andy will officially become a CIVILIAN.  That's right, a common tax paying, rule following, learning social niceities/politically correct individual (all traits dormant since age 18).
Congratulations and Cheers!

Great review. I've been wanting to get a kayak myself (especially for the work out aspect). Do you keep if inflated or deflate/inflate every time you want to use it? I'm just always trying to figure out where we're going to store things.

It folds into a bag (kind of like an air matress). We kept it inflated until we heard of the rain....I deflated and attempted to fold up tonight...almost got it in the bag. I think the only the we have to be really careful about is the clear bottom and scratching it up. So worth the money! congrats on the baby by the way! very exciting!
