Frequently Asked Questions

What gear do I need to get with my kayak?

The key essentials for all kayaks are a lifejacket and paddle. Kayaks with decks also use a sprayskirt and flotation. Whitewater paddlers and sea kayakers in rock and surf zones should use a helmet. You'll also want appropriate clothing for the weather and water conditions you'll be paddling in. Dry bags are also essential for storing gear you'll need while on the water.

How do I need to store the kayak?

When possible, choose an indoor location or one that is protected from the elements such as sheds, garages, or porches. A shady, cool and dry location helps minimize damage from sun, moisture, or heat. If you need to store your boat outdoors, we recommend a cover to protect your boat from the elements and keep little creatures out. If possible, store your boat out of direct sunlight and slightly elevated off the ground.

How do I keep my kayak clean?

We recommend rinsing your kayak after each use, especially in saltwater environments. For deeper cleans, you'll want to use a mild natural or marine-friendly soap. Please check your owner's manual for any specific recommendations.

Do I need a spray skirt for my kayak?

Spray skirts or splash decks are commonly used for kayaks with a cockpit, although some paddlers prefer not to use them in flatwater environments. Sit-on-top kayaks do not use spray skirts.
