If you aren't confident going on an area river, talk to us first. We can advise you if your kayak is suitable for the conditions at hand. Many small box store kayaks don't belong on surging area rivers. They are OK on our inland lakes. Don't go on the water un-prepared, we provide accredited instruction here. And don't consider your PFD as a fashion accessory. You will not have time to react when the upset occurs. So please, wear your PFD at all times. If you don't like your PFD, visit us. We always have superior gear, that our picky buyers select. The comfort of good gear and safe equipment is not to be glossed over. YOLO.
