Types of Sit On Top Kayaks For Sale

Sit On Top Kayaks or commonly abbreviated to SOTís are the most popular form of kayaks used throughout the world. Extremely safe, as they are virtually unsinkable and can be climbed back onto (with a little practice) in the event of a capsize or unintentional dismount. Due to their popularity, there is a vast array of different models from leading manufactures to suit everyoneís paddling style and ability. They can be used by families or couples for beach days, exploring inland waterways and are also proving to be extremely popular with anglers keen to explore new waters. The downside to SOTís (compared to closed cockpit/sit inside kayaks) is that the paddler is exposed to the elements and it is harder to get a secure fit in the kayak for skills such as eskimo rolling or tackling those bigger conditions.

For those not wishing to transport their kayak on a vehicle roofrack system or trailer, or paddlers tight on storage space. Inflatable SOTís pack down to a fraction of their size.
