Yep, I think I might even buy a kayak so I can practice more often too.
I cant work out if you would need a short paddle to go with your short arms, or a long paddle because you wound't have enough reach to make it to the water
Pretty sure you can borrow the ones from Arawa for free if you join up. They also have a good spreadsheet of all the boats available and how fast/tippy they are. You should try out Em's sprinter as you'll need a smaller boat than most guys due to your lack of weight.
What he is actually saying Tane is you need a girls boat, wearing kids running gear you can get away with, but do you really want to be that guy in a girls boat?
Smoke and mirrors Greg. Don't worry, nobody will suspect its a young man called Tane when all they see is a bald head bobbing up and down clutching an upturned girls boat with skinny girls arms.
So you probably want one of the following:
Anything else and you'll go too slow. ;-)
Or perhaps a sprinter or U2. I think Ash has a U2 you could probably try on the avon or something.
UFO = no
Evo Edge = definitely not, who would be silly enough to own one of those...
Sprinter, just as tippy as a UFO but slow = nah probably not...
U2 = apparently pretty shit
Not sure might be easy to get a boat now just to get something quite stable to get into the market then trade up later if needs be...
Sprinter is nothing like a UFO, relatively stable, agree with the rest though
