I didn't mean to, it just happened. I was at Dick's Sporting Goods on Memorial Day and saw that they were on a great sale. I've been wanting one for a while. The Tidewater area is a heaven for kayakers. A kayak would give me many very good places to fish a short distance from my house.
Like I said they were on a great sale and Fathers Day is just around the corner, so I made a snap decision an bought an inexpensive sit on top. It is the Future Beach Spirit 120. I paid $220 for it.
Before the kayak experts turn up their nose to this purchasing decision, contemplate this: I have never sat in a kayak. I know nothing about them. When I made this purchase I did not even know if I would enjoy kayaking. Purchasing a cheap one made sense.
I did have the presence of mind to Google it on my iPhone before purchasing. It got good reviews.
I took it home, broke the news to me wife, and played with it for a while. Wanting to see how stable it was, I placed it in a full kiddie pool and sat in it.
It was more fun(ny) than informative.

And yes, My daughter is in a princess dress. That is just how we roll.
Three days later I took it out on the water. It was an awesome adventure.....Stay tuned!
