About kayaking and the kayaks

We have ten single kayaks and three double kayaks. See pictures at the bottom of this page.

Yes, kids older than 5 will normally enjoy kayaking. For kids 5 years old and up to 10/11-years it’s normally best with a double kayak. Let the kid sit in the front seat. The double kayak works fine, even if the kid stops paddling. I have often kayaked for hours, without any help from the kid in the front, he was just relaxing. Kids older than 10 will often handle one of the single kayaks.

All double kayaks and 3 of 4 single kayaks have a rodder. Disclaimer: Some rodders might be out of function some days each season (remember to take up the rodder when you make landfall). An interesting thing is that the main purpose of the rodder is not to turn, believe it or not. The main purpose is to help the kayak going straight in strong sidewind or currents (we have no currents, and rearly strong wind). Personally, I never use the rodder here unless the sidewind is very strong.
