I have the sit-upon and I'm on the east coast of Florida. Love it!! and I'm able to drop it in the river quite frequently. I've been dying for the pedal type, but they are much more expensive. Have seen several of them on Crane Creek and the owners love them. You can keep going much longer, since you can rotate between arms and legs or do them all together.I got mine at West Marine, but there are many places. It's a great idea to go out and try a few rentals so you can be sure you're getting something you will enjoy.
I rented a paddleboard, thinking I would like one, but after trying them I found that I much prefer my kayak. It's all about your personal preference.
