We put the kayak in the car with our life jackets, a small cooler for water, keys, camera and cell phone, just in case! We drove to the Oyster Recycling Center on Hwy 17, about a quarter mile north of the entrance to Huntington Beach State Park.
It was only 7:30 and I was surprised to see at least a half dozen cars with boat trailers already there. I guess they started fishing at sunrise.
We pumped up the kayak and seats with the foot pump. It actually took less than 10 minutes to pump up the kayak. Using a little leg action before we use a little arm action to paddle. It makes for a complete workout!! Actually, it is really easy to set up.
