How to Launch a Kayak
Carry your kayak to the water's edge and then launch it there. You may carefully drop your kayak into the water if you're starting from a dock. When launching from the beach, seek out an area where the water is gradually getting deeper and there isn't a sharp drop-off. The best ground is muddy or sandy.
Sit on the edge of your kayak with your legs dangling over the side and hop in when you're ready. Enter the cockpit slowly, stabilizing yourself if necessary with your paddle blade. Once inside, slip your legs behind the deck flaps and tighten your spray skirt around your waist.
Once you're clear of any obstructions, paddle sideways away from the coast to begin moving. After then, paddle your kayak while aiming it in the desired direction. Don't forget to sometimes alternate sides to prevent becoming too worn out on one.
