Why an Inflatable Kayak?
Being based in the Lake District we have a lot of water to play with – it defines the whole geography of the area. Canoeing and kayaking has been part of our lives for over 30 years now and we’ve got a large collection of boats rammed in the back yard at Head to the Hills! However, what we really wanted was something with the performance of a kayak but with the stability and convenience of an inflatable. It had to be “Boot (our black Lab) Proof” and fun to use on rivers, lakes and safe to use in the surf with enough space for 2 people, a dog and equipment. The weight and durability of the kayak were also of concern; it needed to be genuinely portable and able to withstand lots of abuse (we’ve trashed too many cheap inflatable’s to buy another and stake our reputation on it!).
