That being said, REI is certainly a reputable retailer (with many branch stores) and will see to it that you are satisfied. If you do not have access to kayak shops in your area, or if you are looking for the convenience of online shopping and home delivery then the REI banner at the top of this page will be a good alternative. Feel free to contact me about kayaks, equipment and their use at: Ask Tom @ TopKayaker.net. Also see our EXTENSIVE reviews section.
Sevylor Wave 'N Paddle Board has started many sit-on-top paddlers in their paddling career. It is a "spring board" to test the waters so to speak. MAKE NO MISTAKE! This kayak IS A TOY, a very good toy. It is built for fun and play, for light duty use. This kayak is inflatable, so you will want to get an air pump. It is best used by light riders who weigh about 150 pounds. For heavier riders consider the Sevylor "Flag Ship" the Tahiti - sometimes available from REI. Best uses are: Snorkel & Swim Platform, Light Tackle Casting, Playing around in safe "Surf Soup" and for kids and adults to have some fun at the beach. It is easy to transport, even on a bus! Although this kayak is a toy, please use it responsibly and wear a life vest. This model has been replaced with an updated version.
The Frenzy is an excellent play boat. It is supper stable, very maneuverable. It is not a fast kayak at all, but its short length will make it easy to store and transport. The Frenzy is particularly good for wave riding, snorkeling, short recreational trips and light fishing.
