- Wear sneakers or footwear that you don’t mind getting wet. Chances are, you’ll spend some time in the water, and you don’t know what’s on the bottom.
- Wear a bathing suit. You are likely to get wet.
- Leave valuables behind. If you take a small amount of cash and a camera, make sure they’re in waterproof pouches.
- Bring a water bottle, some sunscreen and a bug repellent.
- Rinse off your equipment before storing and allow to drip dry.
- Create a space or location in your home to keep you kayak up and out of the way during the off season.
One of the challenges kayak owners face is temporary or off-season storage. Sure, they are light and easy to transport, but where do you keep them during other months of the year? As noted in the tips above, the key is being able to stow them so that it not taking up valuable space – either in a shed or your garage.
