Benefits of Inflatable Kayaks

Posted by River to Ocean Adventures on

Inflatable Kayaks have come a long way already and are very popular among Kayak enthusiasts and casual users.  Why limit yourself with roof racks and cumbersome storage when you can have all the performance benefits of a top quality kayak stored in a backpack that travels with you?

Easy to Inflate and Assemble

You can easily assemble and inflate your kayak anywhere and anytime using a simple hand pump or an electric pump. You just need to roll it out of the bag and pump up the air chambers. Once the kayak is inflated, you take your paddles and start paddling....simple.

Portability

You do not need a rack on top of your car to carry your inflatable kayak about. Once deflated, the kayak can easily fit in small bag, on the car seat, or in the boot. This means that no matter what kind or size car you have, you do not have to worry about how to transport your inflatable kayak or purchase roof racks. In addition, you can carry it comfortably on your motorcycle or bicycle, especially if you are planning to kayak nearby.

Performance

As compared to the rigid kayak, the inflatable kayak is very stable on water and doesn’t capsize easily because of its large surface area. They are light in weight and can be guided through narrow canals and waterways without difficulty. In addition, due to the fact that the bottom of the inflatable kayaks don’t dip to far beneath the water, they are very suitable for use in shallow rivers and lakes.

Maintenance

Inflatable kayaks are very easy to maintain. In case it is torn or punctured, you usually only need to follow a few simple procedures to fix the problem. In addition, replacement parts and accessories such as valves, seats, paddles, and storage bags are readily available.

Flexibility

Just a single inflatable kayak can serve numerous functions. You can use it for swimming, fishing, sight-seeing, racing, and other fascinating water activities. Check out our Extreme Elements Convertible Kayak. This best seller is a great all rounder and can be used as a tandem or alone.

Safety

Because an inflatable kayak is filled with air, it is less likely to sink in water unless most or all of its air chambers are punctured or interfered with.

Eco-Friendly

The inflatable kayak does not have negative or harmful effects on the environment. With regular kayaks run by motor, air or water pollution is always expected. But with the inflatable kayak, you use paddles and not a motor to move on water, explaining why it is significantly safe for the environment.

Durability

High-quality inflatable kayaks are designed with thick polyurethane or polyvinyl chloride (PVC). These materials are strong enough to withstand the different rough water conditions. So, if you are looking forward to an exciting and breathtaking run down a fast-moving stream or river filled with protruding sticks, branches, or rocks, be assured that your inflatable kayak is ready to take you through the big challenge.

Storage

The inflatable kayak does not require a lot of space for storage. You can keep it in the closet!  Be sure to store your kayak in a space free of heavy or sharp objects to avoid causing unnecessary damages. You should also keep it out of your children’s reach as they might get tempted to play with it and damage it or get injured.
