Through the Star Kayak design and build processes we have made kayak safety our primary focus. Some of these features are easy to see, others you will feel on the water.
You'll find the best people to help you are in your Kayak Stores and Clubs. They know the local area and what skills you'll need to stay safe. If nothing else you're bound to hear some great stories.
And remember, if you don't use it you'll loose it. Once learnt your skills need to be practiced. So go out with some friends and plan to get wet. Jump in a heated pool in winter or a calm shallow bay in summer and go over all those little things that could make the difference if trouble found you.
