How long do kayaks last?
That having been said, with normal usage, with not picking up the bow and dragging the kayak over hard surfaces, with taking care around oyster reefs, with tying down the kayak adequately when transporting it, with storing it in the shade, it should be about as good as new in 10 years.
What month can you start kayaking?
Most people find that late spring to early summer is the best time to go kayaking. By this point in the year, the weather is generally warm enough to not have to bundle up, but it isn’t so hot that you have to worry about keeping cool either.
