Inflatable Kayaks

May 02, 2017

Our friends over at InflatableKayaker.com have recently published a  http://www.inflatablekayaker.com/michigan-kayaking-guide/ free guide on kayaking in Michigan and a guide for Texas.

The brains behind the guide is brought to you by Jason Paul, a lifelong enthusiast of watersports. Jason has traveled extensively all over the world and currently resides in Panama with his wife and two small children. He launched InflatableKayaker.com in 2010 after taking an interest in inflatable kayaks due to their convenience and incredible portability.  His site is dedicated to reviewing inflatable kayaks and boats and is the go-to resource for this topic.

To be honest, inflatable kayaks have never been on my radar. I’ve always pictured them as a cheap substitute for the real thing. However after speaking with Jason I have a different perspective on them. The portability aspect is intriguing (they hardly take up any space), and the newer boats are made from high quality durable materials. They’re definitely on my radar to check out this summer and I'll be using inflatablekayaker.com to make any purchase decisions.

Michigan is such a great place to paddle — the state is literally filled with amazing lakes and rivers of all sizes, making it the perfect place for paddling enthusiasts of all types. Whether you're looking for an intense multi-day trip or a few hours of leisurely paddling on the canals of Detroit, there's something for everyone here.

If you’re into kayaking and getting on the water, be sure to head on over and download their PDF guides. They’re free and showcase 20 of the top spots in the state for kayaking. 

As a Michigan native myself I found the kayak trips Jason outlines interesting and learned a lot about different ways to see the state.

Happy paddling!

Ride Share Bikes aka Nice Ride

The Nice Ride bikes just opened up for the season in my home city of Minneapolis. I bought an annual pass last year and was hooked! For those of you who don’t know, Nice Ride (https://www.niceridemn.org/) is a public bike rental system that enables users to check a bike out of a station, and then deposit it at any station wherever their destination may be.  The stations are strategically located throughout the city which makes them very convenient to use.

So funny story here, my wife and I recently traveled to Thailand and Cambodia.  Part of our trip was three nights on Koh Phi Phi island.  The place is incredibly beautiful, and the pictures floating around on the internet don't do it justice.
