The iPhone is normally the trend setter for the latest and best apps. It’s probably one of the most useful and widely used items in life today, covering a wide range of areas. This is also true in the outside “adventure” world, and its use can be a great aid to canoeists, kayakers and paddle boardists. However, because of its great use in this very wet adventure life, extra precaution must be taken with it, as it will be extremely easy for it to be damaged by water.

There are, essentially, three types of kayaks: hard-shelled kayaks, collapsible kayaks, and inflatable kayaks. If you have never owned a kayak before, an inflatable one may possibly be the best place to start.

As a beginning kayaker, you may not yet know what suits your tastes best, so they can be a fairly practical option especially when you are first gaining your footing. Of course, there are pros and cons to consider with inflatable kayaks, and if you are a more experienced kayaker there may be a better option suited for you. The inflatable kayak requires significantly little room for storage, you can even put it in your closet. Consequently, it can also fit in the trunk of your car so you...
