Kayaks sit on top

The sit on top kayaks is very popular due to them being a very safe and easy style of paddle sports. There are a few choices for you to consider when buying a kayak, the first being an inflatable or plastic craft. This is because of the storage and transporting of the boat to the water. Both styles are great to explore and for coastal paddling and general paddling fun, or will be equally at home in inland waterways, a river or lake or gentle rivers

Trying to choose between a single or tandem sit on top kayak? Well, the options are plentiful! Single person kayaks come in various sizes that cater to your weight and desired style of paddling. On the other hand, if you're looking for something larger, why not try out our tandem sit on top kayaks – designed with space for two adults (plus one extra seat where you can bring along either a junior or even your pup!). Plus, they come available in an array of beautiful colours.

Plastic sit-on-top kayaks

We sell the Tootega plastic sit-on-top kayaks, stable for the family and ideal for first-time paddlers, they make various sizes. smaller adults under 90kg for the 8'5, and 9'5" kayak for larger adults, in their excellent range at great prices. Their best-selling craft is the Tootega Pulse sit-on-top kayaks are ideal for beach fun, and a great all-rounder you can even fish from one. They make the Hydrolite version which is a lightweight version.

I have been playing with this kayak in the waves; it is a great piece of equipment. You can attach a seat and thigh straps, and there is even a place to secure your alloy shaft paddle to make it hands-free or can be used as an optional rod holder if you want to do some fishing.

Enthusiastic paddlers, you must check out Tootega's Kinetic boat! Not only does it boast impressive speed capabilities for a touring craft, but also has plenty of storage space - with storage hatches for your phone ( if used with a waterproof bag). With the Kinetic, exploring nearby waterways is effortless and convenient. Don't miss this chance to make all your wildest kayaking dreams come true! Tootega makes fishing kayaks, but we order in when purchased.

Inflatable Kayak sit on top

We are pleased to stock the latest version of the best-selling Sandbanks inflatable general-purpose inflatable kayak at a great price. This comes in different styles and lengths. The tandem explorer has good stability and is ideal for family fun with small children. It is lightweight, easy to fold down and store in a bag, and great for taking friends on stable adventures exploring or touring. The sit-on-tops, optimal kayaks are a great option if you are keen on paddling a little faster.

Kayak and canoe trolleys

If you're looking for a way to carry your sit-on-top kayak short distances, we offer trolleys that make it effortless to wheel them down the beach! And if you need something more substantial? We also sell roof rack pads and tie-down straps – perfect for installing your kayak onto the top of any car.

Paddle and accessories

These can all be found on our Kayak accessories page, along with paddles and backrests, or light-weight canvas seats. Oystercoast behind the beach rents kayaks that can be paddled in the summer holidays.

Kayaking is a safe way to enjoy the water, and Whitstable beaches are a great location to go sit on top of kayaking during the summer.

Please come and see us at Boardworx if you are looking for sit-on-tops. A kayak for sea or inland waters, or need a surf wet suit or boots.
