I am trying to get into kayaking this summer, but have no idea where to start. I would like to just run rivers the idea of doing tricks and everything does not really appeal to me at this point. I have some whitewater canoeing experience but no real kayaking besides flat water. I am 6'2" 220 lb. Any boat suggestions to fit my needs that i can find used for a good price? Are there any sites like MP for kayaking? Any information will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Keep an eye on craigs list. You will be able to find a good boat there. I would not pay more than $500 for a used boat and you should be able to find one to come with a skirt or float bags. Given your size just make sure it's a large boat for whatever model you come across. The medium size will not be large enough for you. If you have any specific questions just send me an email.
