Suggestions for Kayaks for Children 4 years, 4 months ago #31555

My daughter has just started kayaking and I am sure she would pick it up quicker if she was in a boat that was the right size for her. Can anyone suggest what boats would be suitable for an 11 year old, she is 1.53m tall and weighs around 42kg (that's 5'0" and around 92 pounds).

Some of the other kids in the club paddle Dagger Dynamos but are there any other boats we should consider?

Maybe you can consider one of the Youth-series of Jackson Kayak.

Thanks for the link! Is there a summer camp for young kayakers?

Sorry if I'm a bit late, but the Dagger Dynamo and Pyranha Rebel are FANTASTIC boats for those that can fit in them. If a child can get into a dynamo, thats what I tell them to paddle. I can't recommend them highly enough
The rebel is pretty much the same boat, as far as I'm aware.
Aside from that, the Jackson's I've seen are also great, if a little more specialised.

With the size and weight, the kids boats will not suit her for all that long anymore. Search for an old Lettmann Pintail or a Pyranha InAzone 220 / 222. These boats are great alrounders for people up to 60 kg and fun river-runners for paddlers up to 80 kg.

Thanks for the tips, how much should I pay for an old Lettmann Pintail?
