Kayak spray skirts are essential for anyone wanting to keep water out of the cockpit of their boat. Whitewater spray skirts are especially important if you're planning to paddle rapids.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you need a kayak skirt?

You'll need a kayak skirt to stabilize your boat when the waves are splashing over the deck.

What is a kayak skirt called?

A kayak skirt is also known as a spraydeck or a sprayskirt.

What is the difference between whitewater and recreational spray skirts?

Recreational skirts are designed primarily to keep splash and spray out of your kayak. They use lighter materials and have a slightly looser fit to the cockpit rim, making them easier to take on and off the kayak. Whitewater skirts use neoprene for increased performance and durability. They will also fit more snugly to the cockpit rim to keep water out of your boat and stay in place while rolling.

How do I figure out the correct size kayak spray skirt?

Each skirt has a sizing guide to help determine which size will best fit your boat. Please let us know if you have additional questions and we'll be happy to help you determine the best fit for your boat.

Why do some kayak spray skirts have waist measurements and some don't?

Some spray skirts use a universal tunnel size that will fit most waists. Others use more fitted tunnels to match your waist size.

How Do You Choose the Right Kayak Skirt?

Start by determining what type of kayak you have and simply match the size of the cockpit to your kayak skirt size. From there, you need to determine what type of kayaking you do!

Recreational kayakers generally use a nylon spray skirt to keep out the occasional water splash. On the other hand, sea kayakers who take on more extreme pursuits will be better off with a neoprene kayak skirt. What’s nice about these is they typically have additional features, like extra pockets or hand warmers.

If you’re looking for whitewater spray skirts, we’ve got those too. They’re made from 100% neoprene with a shock cord that secures the skirt to the cockpit.

We want to reiterate that caring for your kayak skirt after use is important to ensure longevity - and help you get the most out of it. That means keeping it clean, rinsing it with clean water after every use (especially if you encounter salt water or chlorine), and storing it in a cool, dry place - protected from UV rays that can degrade the rubber.
