Tips for Buying Kayak Seats & Parts

We have kayak seats and parts that will increase your comfort and performance on the water.

Putting a new seat into your boat will not only take away some of those aches and pains caused by your old one, but it will also improve the fit of your boat. This improvement in fit can make you feel more balanced on the water, and help improve skills like edging and rolling.

When fitting out your boat, you should ensure that you have adequate padding all around, so there is no sharp edges digging in. Any little niggles can cause major annoyance after a few hours in the boat.

You also want to make sure that you have enough padding in between your hips, and the side of the boat. Padding this area out more will greatly improve your control by allowing your hips to connect better with the boat's balance.

Lastly you want to make sure that you have enough support for your lower back. Support here will help you maintain correct upright paddling posture. 

If you have any questions, or need help selecting from our kayak seats and parts, feel free to contact our team any time for advice.
