Good catch. Almost every watersport stuff is OOS because of the pandemic!

I know we don't have time machines and the pandemic changes things, but it's good to at least note that these normally go for ~$75-90 I think? And I got 2 of them for $30 each about 2 years ago when amazon was having a sale

Typically 20ish end of summer and last maybe couple of years. Not a deal at all.

It still will likely drop under $50 at the end of summer.

I bought at $80 years ago. So worth it for $125 still!

These are great fun and durable toys.

Don’t worry about saving a few bucks to miss out on a few weeks or months of fun!
Wow, can’t believe I even wrote that, and on RFD. Flushed Face

Got a similar Intex Kayak and lost this part, the Skeg. It's been unavailable for over 2 years on the Intex web site :

Be careful about losing it ! If anyone was able to find a replacement please post with the where and how much.

I've had the K2 for 3-4 years now. (2person)
It's held up surprisingly well. Even on choppy water or windy days it never feels like it's going to flip, fairly flat bottomed.
Works well for 1person + gear, as the seats adjustable, and can me moved to a center position.
Only downside I could give would be the kayak paddles are a little short for myself, and the rudder (depending on year) may fall off, but replacements are cheap (upgraded mine).

Took it out to Algonquin for a 5 day portage, wind, rain, it held up well.

I had a two person from Intex , total disaster. Lent it to my best friend to use and it popped a hole for them. Mine wasn't durable at all.

Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

Beginner at Kayaking, looking for some input.

1. Is this considered beginner friendly?
2. I'd assume the vest is not included with the kayak, right? Any good deals for a vest anywhere if someone knows?

This might be a nice gift for myself to start being a bit more active during covid.
another one.

Sounds like people are saying to buy this now, enjoy it, and then in a month when its on sale buy it again and return the old one using the new item you received.

Price adjusting at it's finest. Thanks OP

These PVC boats are okay for floating around but pain in the butt trying to go anywhere, not enough linear stability and lots of resistance, just the act of paddling would make them swing left and right. Going into a headwind you better have Popeye arms.

I used mine two or three times and threw it in the basement.

Bought two from Save on foods for 80 or 90$ last month. Haven't had issues with them , other than they are a pain to deflate and pack. But they are convenient. Yes not going to win any races but for what they are they are great.

Edit, what's the best way to get notified if prices go down, would be in for another one if price goes down

Canadian version of Camel Camel Camel. Just enter the url of the item and add your email and price alert amount.
