UV Rays Are Harmful To Kayaks, SUP’s, And Canoes.
It doesn’t matter what type of watercraft you have. An abundance of sunshine beaming down on your beloved toys is one of the most subtle, yet toughest elements mother nature can throw at it. Extended exposure to UV rays from the sun can be extremely harmful to kayaks, stand up paddle boards, canoes, and other self-propelled watercraft. Blocking out these excessive rays is important to provide protection and make sure that your watercraft is ready for optimal use, while also keeping it looking good as new.

Keeping the critters out!
We’ve all been there where you leave your kayak flipped over on the ground for a couple of days, only to return to it being inhabited by a snake or two trying to escape the heat. And, as a company who hails from the south, we know all about water moccasins, rattlesnakes, and other various critters in this exact situation. While having your kayaks and canoes elevated doesn’t eliminate the risk, it will minimize it, along with the surprise factor that comes along with discovering your poisonous, slithery friend.
Keep water and debris out of the hull.
Depending on the materials that your self-propelled watercraft is made of. Keeping water, leaves, tree limbs and other damaging things mother nature has to offer out of your kayak will make it last longer and more “maintenance free” using a kayak rack over leaving it exposed on an open dock or strewed about in the grass off to the side of your lake or beach house. With an elevated kayak rack you can grab your kayak and go vs having to flip, drain, and clean mother nature out of it.
Vertical Kayak Storage Makes Your Boat Dock More Organized And Creates More Usable Space.
We’ve designed our kayak racks to optimize the space your boat dock has to offer. With vertical storage you open more usable space so that you, your family and friends have ample space to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
