Why a Sit-On-Top kayak?

Because it is simpler, safer and cheaper.

If you look into the world of traditional sit-in kayaks/canoes you’ll discover a lot of unnecessary burdens and obstacles preventing a straight-forward comfortable ride on the water. However, these days there are plenty of options for the recreational rower; one of them being the sit-on-top kayak.

DESIGN: Sit-on-top kayaks have a similar hull and shape and share many of the benefits of traditional canoes, but rather than sitting inside the kayak, you sit on a molded seat depressed into the top. Some are made of fiberglass, but most are made of durable Polyethylene using the "Rotomolding" system.

VERSATILITY: There are sit-on-top kayaks designed for fishing, surfing, travelling, scuba diving and more. Some have specialized designs, but most sit-on-tops are created for multiple use with recreational users or beginners in mind.

COMFORT: Sit-on-top kayaks have many advantages over canoes, one of them being comfort. Paddlers with large bodies, long legs, or limited flexibility, may feel less restricted using a sit-on-top kayak.

SAFETY: One of the biggest benefits is the ease of making a self-rescue. Having an open deck rather than closed leaves less risk of being caught in the boat should it capsize. With a sit-on-top kayak there is no need to practice "Eskimo rolls" or "wet exits" making them an attractive vessel for beginners.

Sit-on-tops are fun and a great way to enjoy kayaking

So grab an oar and set off on your very own Galaxy!
