ocean kayaking

I am writing a story about someone who goes out Kayaking. The kayaking is not the central part of the story but the setting. I know nothing about this sport and could use some background information. What would be most helpful is if someone would do a breakdown on the process of getting ready. HOw you get dressed? How you transport your boat to the water? How you get beyond the breakers. Paddling tecnique. Are you locked in your seat? What do you do if you roll? How you get back in the boat. I understand the seat slides, why? Please don't think any detail you can share too small. Smell, taste, feel of the ocean, sand, air. Also, shark attacks; how often do they occur, why do they occur, etc. I know it's a tall order so I thank you all in advance for your help

Sincerely Dawson Links to pics would be a great help.
