Over the last few weeks we have been hearing lots of reports of how bikes and kayaks are being sold out in stores all over Edmonton.

With growing interest in Kayaking, we thought it would be fun to do a series for those of you who might be interested in getting some fitness in on the water!   We have found some fantastic articles on Kayaking that we will be sharing over the next few weeks!


Here is Part 2 of our Kayaking series…Getting Started At Kayaking!

The REI Co-op website has some fantastic tips that covers everything you would want to know about kayaking.  Some more great suggestions from this article…before you buy a kayak, you may want to:
