Tall Man Wants Kayak Now!!!

To enjoy kayaking a person must feel comfortable in the kayak. The great news is there are an abundance of models of various sizes to choose from which offer deluxe comfort built into their seat design, the amount of space and extra features inside the cockpit. With all these choices the vast majority of people should have absolutely no problem finding a kayak that fits them perfectly.

But what if you are a tall man over 6-foot maybe, even 6-5 to 6-6 tall? Can you possibly fit comfortably into a kayak that was made for someone a half foot shorter than you? The answer is NO. But does this mean kayaking is another area of your life that you will have to suffer while all the shrimps get the breaks? Absolutely NOT.

Finding a comfortable kayak can be challenging for tall people. The main things you will need is extra space for your long legs and since your extra length usually means you weigh more than the average man you will might also want to pay attention to the carrying capacity of the kayaks you are interested in.

Also, there are many different styles and types of kayaks out there, e.g. recreational, inflatable, fishing, touring, whitewater, expedition, sit-on-tops, sit-inside or tandem kayaks. Make sure you know the type you are looking for. Below you will find a few suggestions for tall people in these different categories.
