How to choose this product
sit-on-top-kayak

The user of a sit-on-top, or open-cockpit kayak sits on rather than in the craft. Often wider than other types, it is unsinkable thanks to its double hull.

Applications

Originally promoted as a boat for beginners, today's numerous models are suitable for everything from surfing to long-shore ocean cruising. Its stability makes it a good choice for novices or those worried about capsizing in a skirted model. It is also ideal for fishing and spear fishing.

Technologies

These kayaks have no deck, are stable and unsinkable, making it very easy to get back on after a capsize. Shipped water flows out through scuppers. Polyethylene construction makes them impact-resistant, but also heavy. However, newer high-density polyethylene offers a reasonable sturdiness-to-weight ratio.

How to choose

The sit-on-top kayak can be fitted out according to the user's wishes with gear nets, watertight storage, depth finder mount or other equipment.

Advantages

- Stability
- No Eskimo roll necessary for righting
- Rugged
- Suitable for all water conditions

Disadvantages

- Heavy
- Extra width produces extra drag
- Extra height results in more wind drift
