Hi Karen.

To get sensible answers, you need to give more information. What kind of water do you plan to paddle on? Short or long trips? (That makes a difference to how much gear you need to carry.) Can you drive to your chosen water, or will you have to carry the boat? Is quick assembly important to you? (Some of the most seaworthy folding kayaks take quite a long time to assemble. Great for long expeditions, but not ideal if you just want an hour's paddle on flat water.)

Good luck in your search.

Mary

The first coronary to the law of average is ... It should float

Exactly. We can't really offer advice without knowing more: What are the primary conditions you'll be paddling in? What size are you? How much storage do you need? What is your general price-range?

I suggest you check the other sections of this site for more info. That should be enough to at least get you started.

...seems more like a spammer then someone seriously seeking advice.

Hi, I live in Adelaide South Australia. We reach 40 degrees C in summer and rarely get below 5 degrees C in winter. I live some 40 minutes car travel from ocean and lake. I plan to paddle mainly on lake, near the sea and perhaps a little in the sea. There is very little surf.
Being interested also in kites I am looking also at a fraction kite to pull the canoe along but am not adverse to considering a sail but this is a low priority.
The only foldable canoe on sale here is the Aqua Extreme stealth but I am uncertain how my legs would fare in the sun with a transparent kayak.
Track have a dealer in Melbourne several hundred kms away.
Cheers, Rok345
