Inflatable and recreational kayaks
There are different styles of kayaks designed for a different use. We might be wrong, but when we think of someone searching for cheap kayaks for sale, we first think of the recreational style. As these are generally the least expensive to buy. There’s also fishing and touring kayaks but as a general rule these types are more expensive. Then inflatable kayaks which are the least expensive to buy. And all these come in the sit-inside and sit-on-top designs.
The cheapest type of kayak you can buy is of the recreational inflatable variety. While, we prefer hardshell, inflatables do provide certain conveniences such as: low cost, storage advantages and being portable.
