How should I store my kayak?

Store your kayak on its side. Do not store in on it’s hull or on 2×4 saw horses as this can cause to hull to deform over time. To protect your kayak, we recommend providing shelter from the sun while in storage. To avoid excessive heat build up, do not cover your kayak with a tarp laying directly on its surface. Make sure to leave adequate air space for circulation. We recommend storing your kayak inside for the winter.
