Psst! Want to quickly change your life for the better with one simple habit and max out of each adventure you have on the water? Here’s a creative tip: Keep a Kayaking Trip Journal.
What’s a simple answer to bringing everyone in your family together to create memories, get some fantastic exercise and learn new skills you’ll all enjoy for decades to come? Yep. Recreational kayaking – the “trifecta” of family fun!
It’s a late afternoon in summer. The air is warm and still. You’re sitting in your kayak, quietly drifting along a slow, lazy river, breathing deeply, enjoying the moment. Your young daughter and son are happily paddling on either side of your boat. Life is filled with blessings and you’re grateful. Suddenly, without warning, a burst of feathers explodes out of the reeds just a few dozen yards away! What the….??!!
Kayaking is one of the best ways to get out on the water and enjoy the outdoors. However, while kayaks are extremely durable as you ride the waves with them, they won’t last long if you’re not careful about storing them. Best Marine & Outdoors offers the kayak storage solutions that you need to keep your kayaks looking and performing their best at all times.
Your kayak can be damaged in a number of ways. One of the most devious problems is the sun. UV light can damage the colors of your kayaks, and it can also weaken hatch covers if the sun constantly shines on your kayaks. Plus, if you tie down your kayak to the top of your hot car, the plastic can actually melt and deform.
Other elements can damage your kayak as well, especially if you don’t keep it covered. If you store your boats outside, then wind, rain, snow, leaves, and pests can all wreak havoc on the kayaks. Even inside storage can let spiders and pests make a home in your kayak.
We have the storage solutions you need to keep your kayaks safe from these dangers. Our store has everything from storage racks and stands to high-quality kayak covers. Click one of the links down below to see all of our products.
We can all agree that kayaking is a fantastic way to get outside and enjoy nature, but having the right kayak paddle can be the difference between a beautiful afternoon and a grueling chore
There's lots of talk about kayak paddles nowadays. There's a variety of styles and many opinions on what’s best. Some say a kayak oar doesn't matter and others say it does. Many times it depends on the type of kayak you own and the type of paddling you'll be doing.
For the sake of argument, we're going to say that carbon fiber kayak paddles are the way to go. They're smooth, lightweight, easy on your arms and shoulders, and typically make the entire kayaking experience that much better.
Our store has the carbon kayak paddles you need at a fraction of the cost of similar types of paddles. Add in a paddle storage rack and a kayak paddle leash and you'll be ready to go in no time.
Better made than the one at Walmart, and the same price. Consider tying the rope to the bottom of the anchor, and put a ziptie from rope to top, if it gets stuck in a rock a hard pull will break the tie, and the rope may then drag the anchor out backwards.

I don't write many product reviews and usually don't buy anything that hasn't been reviewed yet. Anyway, decided to take a chance on these paddles and bought two of them. Very happy to say that they are the real deal. My reasonably accurate postal scale shows them to weigh 34oz. The paddles I received compare favorably with the only other carbon shaft paddle I own, a Bending Braches, that I paid more than twice as much for.
I am on the water RIGHT NOW crabbing in my kayak and this anchor is keeping my boat in place perfectly- I was skeptical when I felt how light it was but my boat hasn't moved - love this anchor!
I have a Yamaha wave runner...fits perfect in my storage compartment.....Very satisfied.
Worked awesome in the middle of a hug lake and wind blowing. Kept me and my kayak in the same spot while I fished
Very effective and well made anchor for a Kayak. Delivery was very fast. Customer support is incredible.
Best little anchor ever!....Comes complete...easy to use and throw...holds our two seater Cayman just fine in strong current.
