Boat / Board Outfitting, Storage

Outfitting.  Boats and boards often arrive with simple, basic outfitting necessary to use them safely, like hand holds on the sides or ends and a non-skid  stand up paddleboard deck surfaces.  They can be upgraded to 1) increase your sitting and paddling comfort; 2) help you organize hefty amounts of gear; and 3) improve the performance of your craft.

Seats, knee braces, backrests, hip pads and inflatable bags can make paddling for long periods at a time almost effortless.

External deck rigging, dry storage space, and storage containers can keep sunscreen, snacks, and angling gear handy, separated and dry.

Storage.  Outfitters and retail paddling shops carry a variety of storage containers to help you organize gear and keep your important cargo dry or on ice while you paddle, such as hard and soft coolers, and impact-resistant, waterproof gear boxes for electronics.
