Emotion Glide kayak Review
There is really no other feeling quite like the experience of Gliding along the surface of the water in a nice kayak.However,with the wide variety of kayak’s available in the market today,It can be a little tricky to make the right choice.In This Article i will be talking about my favorite kayak that is the emotion glide kayak .
A couple of month’s ago,When i was trying to find a nice but affordable Hard shell Kayak,I did a lot of research.That’s When i Stumbled upon the Emotion Glide Kayak .I am writing this review After using this kayak for like 6 months’s,And i have used in both calm and and rough water’s.Also Keep in mind that i am in no way connected to Emotion Kayak’s And This review is totally based on my personal experience with the kayak.
The Glide Kayak is A Hard Shell Recreation Kayak Priced Under 500$.The Great thing about This product is that most of the comparably priced
kayaks are inflatable.Although Inflatable Kayak’s are Fun and easy to transport,they are not meant for enthusiasts or anyone Who wants a proper kayaking experience.Inflatable Kayak’s also get punctured easily .
Anyway,The glide can easily fit into most minivan’s so you even need a roof rack.It is also very light and most people should not have problem with carrying it for short distances.
The stability that this kayak provides is also remarkable.It’s smooth,quick and quite easy to maneuver and move.Although it has a decent speed,keep in mind it is not fastest kayak on the market.
It is also equipped with a drain plug which is very use full .
The Emotion glide Also looks great.Its Simple,Bright and has a kinda clean design.It is available in the Following color’s.Lime,Blue,Red,Yellow,tangerine and Granite.Personally Lime is my favorite.
