Some great ideas for handling kayaks. I'm considering one as well. I have a bit of experience on flat water in Canada, but the ocean and surf is another story. Luckily there is a big variation in kayaks design for every application. Make sure you get the right one.

Just last night I finished reading Stuart Trueman's book regarding his unsupported circumnavigation of Australia in a kayak. Wow - that takes guts. Crossing the Australian Bight with huge swell pounding against unbroken vertical cliffs for hundreds of miles; Being chased by crocodiles and 30ft tidal changes in the Kimberly.
