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.
Skegs, fishing pole holders and anchor lines can help you paddle or fish with more confidence, and more fun!
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.
Waterproof, soft storage bags for clothing and camping gear are easy to use and durable for many years of use.
