I'm Abigail Scott, an author, adventurer, and mother of three. When I'm not navigating the beautiful chaos of motherhood, you can find me tackling the turbulent waters as a professional whitewater kayaker or scaling impressive rock faces as a climbing guide. The rush of adrenaline, whether from kayaking or climbing, is a feeling I cherish deeply. But the thrill doesn't stop there; I capture the breathtaking allure of nature through my lens as a professional photographer. And when I'm not submerged in the wild, my software engineering skills amplify my outdoor pursuits, allowing me to harness technology in unique ways. Through my writings, whether articles or blog posts, I share not just my adventures but my heart, hoping to spark a flame of inspiration in others to break boundaries and experience the world's wonders.

Summary

Frequently Asked Questions

Does this have the toggle handle?

Yes. Toggle is on front. Very easy and light to transport. I love this kayak. Even my 13 year old can still use it.

Can you add a seat to this.?

There is no commercially made seat to add to this, however if you can fabricate aluminum strapping and mount a small seat to the fabricated aluminum frame, I would say yes. My advice would be to keep it light and very low for balance... goog luck

Does this have paddle holders and a tow line?

My six year old loves this Kayak! There is an indentation for the Paddle on the kayak yes there is a place in front so you can tow the kayak !!

Would this be ok for a 4 1/2 year old tied to an adult?

Absolutely. My kids were 4+ when started and they learned it very quickly. I now have 6 and 8, almost 9 year old and they can't wait for summer!
