Travel Kayak -
I am going to Nicaragua for the Christmas Holidays and I have never been able to find a decent kayak to rent there.

I am looking to purchase or rent a sectional or foldable for this trip. I am willing to co-own a kayak with other who might have similar trip needs.

All options considered.

Whispbar Roof Rack San Rafael - $250      
Shaped like an airplane wing for very little noise or drag, looks sleek on the car too. Weight capacity 165 lbs. They were great on my 2009 Mazda 3 hatchback, transported my kayak all over, selling because I got a new car.

These are the S5 Flushbar and K340 fit kit.

They fit on other models too, Mazda 6, CX-7, etc, but check the model AND year carefully before buying to be sure they'll work on your vehicle. Whispbar website allows you to check what bar size and fit kit you need.
I purchased them for $520 retail in April '14 from Roof and Rack in San Rafael, still have the original receipt and manual. Comes with a key to lock them to car and set of 4 brand new rubber gaskets for the feet.

Gear left at China Camp - none
Hello, I was at China Camp beach on the afternoon of Friday 11/13/15. I met a lovely couple in a red tandem who were from Berkeley. When I was getting ready to leave, I noticed that they had left their gear (two paddling jackets, under layers, one hat, two water bottles) on a table. As it was getting dark, I picked it all up and took it home. Please contact me so I can arrange to get everything back to you.

Kevlar Current Designs Suka - $2700      
The Suka is such a wonderful kayak. I've never understood why there aren't more out on the water.

The Suka's snug fit means the paddler has solid lower body contact. "Paddle a canoe, wear a Suka."

The keyhole cockpit looks small at first glance, but at a bit more than 150 lbs, I had no trouble entering and exiting.

At, the Suka earned a 9.25/10. The largest reviewer was 5'9" and weighed 155 lbs. One paddler gave it a 9 instead of a 10 because he didn't own one yet?

Included: Neoprene Spay Skirt, two dry bags (1 about 1qt., and 1 small), a "camel," and nimbus straps already installed to facilitate the "heel hook rescue," and locking cable to lessen the possibility of theft.

It has no flaws other than a few dings here and there from boat ramps and docks.

The kayak is in North Berkeley on Rose St. Contact me by e-mail to look the kayak over, try out sitting in it for fit, and a possible test paddle at Aquatic Park in Berkeley or the cove between Cal Adventures and His Lordships. Weekends are best.

With the California Poppy color scheme my Suka is conspicuous on the water, and hard to steal on land.

Why a I selling? I cannot "wear" a Suka with a chihuahua on my lap.

Scupper pro or similar SOT - $
I have a friend with a weekend home in Mendocino who's looking for Scupper Pro or similar SOT in decent condition and relatively inexpensive.
He lives in the Bay Area.
He's interested in abalone and scuba diving from a kayak. He's paddled the Scupper Pro and liked how maneuverable it was relative to the other SOT he had paddled, which was much shorter and wider.

Necky Looksha II - 1400      
Probably the fastest touring kayak ever built, the Looksha II at 20' long and 20" wide gets you and your gear there quick and in style. Not the best beginner boat but unbeatable for those that want to spend a little time in it.
This particular boat is fiberglass with carbon stiffening bands and no gelcoat on the deck for a lighter build. The Looksha II is no longer produced so this is a rare find. Boat is in excellent condition.
