    Sit-inside kayaks are great for intense kayaking because when you sit inside, you’re surrounded by the kayak’s walls, so the ride is smoother and you don’t move around as much inside. They can be for 1 or 2 people. Some have backrests and armrests on the seats for comfort. They also have storage areas, including bungee cords to strap down large gear, which makes them a great choice for camping or hiking. You can adjust the footrests inside, though not all sit-inside kayaks fit tall people comfortably. Also, not all can handle larger people or lots of gear, so check the weight capacity before buying. Some models are more suitable for beginners while others will satisfy advanced kayakers.
