ROOF RACK

 

A "SportRack" rack on the roof of your vehicle is the best way to transport your kayak. You must securely attach it to each bar, and also attach its front and rear to the vehicle ends. We recommend using kayak cradles when the kayak is transported flat.

FOAM BLOCKS

 

While not as safe as a roof rack, you can also use foam blocks if you travel only for a short distance, or make a longer journey at low speed. The blocks must be wide enough to provide sufficient support. The kayak must be securely attached to the vehicle.

BAD WEATHER

 

Considering the weight of a kayak filled with water can be dangerous, turn the kayak over if you are traveling in bad weather to ensure water does not fill up the opening. If it is not possible, use a shipping envelope to cover the opening. Check your kayak frequently to ensure it is safely attached despite rain.

KEEP IN MIND

Use the carrying handles at each end of the kayak to manually transport your kayak only. You should not use them to attach your kayak to your vehicle. 

 

Before leaving, remove all accessories and store them neatly in your vehicle to avoid losing or breaking them. Shortly after your departure, stop to make sure your kayak is safely attached.
