A hand trailer is one that you will push or pull yourself. It’s intended to get your kayak into the water with ease. For example, a more popular spot to put into the river will often have substantial traffic and backing your truck into the “loading zone” will likely not be possible. (Especially if the river has a bit of a drop off, like most do). You will likely park a bit of a trek from the water and getting your kayak there will be all the easier of you have a portable conveyance that will allow you to roll the kayak to the water. A bike trailer is often one that will operate as a hand trailer, but also attach to your bike so that you can travel greater distances. If you plan on biking to your destination to start your kayaking trek, then you’ll want to look into a bike trailer that will also allow you to operate it as a hand trailer, too.
Now that you’ve learned a few kayaking tips and tricks, it’s time to learn some kayaking skills and techniques you can use in different bodies of water. Each environment you choose to paddle contains variables that will impact the way you kayak. For instance, a flowing river may increase your speed naturally while a steady lake will require you to exert more energy to move faster.

Typically most kayak trailers have a capacity of around two to four different kayaks at a time. The manufacturer should have a recommendation and a maximum capacity rating for the trailer. This criteria alone will give you a better idea for what you need. Some of these trailers can potentially be used as multi purpose transportation for other things such as paddle boards, bikes, canoes or even boats depending on it’s capacity.
You will need to figure out how much gear you actually need to carry. These trailers range from 1 to 4 kayaks but won’t be hauling any more than that unless you get a specialty trailer. Every trailer on our list is lightweight yet built from materials that make them strong to hold plenty of kayaks. This is done by using a strong galvanized steel. It is not only one of the strongest and most durable materials, it is also rust and corrosion resistant. This means that you can pull the trailer up to the ocean without worrying that it will start to degrade.
Refurbished Oru Bay ST touring kayak. Bought directly from Oru and used once on calm water. Easy to assemble, tracks great, and picks up speed in a hurry! Great condition! Great for lake and coastal rock garden paddling! Decided to move to a longer boat now that I have more room for storage. Perfect for apartment dwellers or people that don’t want to pay a fortune for a kayak rack on your car. Shipping within continental U.S. is free!
Many a conversation have taken place as to whether you should build your own DIY kayak trailer or buy a manufactured one. If you are mechanically-inclined enough to rig or weld your Harbor Freight trailer into a taller, leveled, multi-kayak device, go for it! But for many of us who prefer to spend our time on the water and in our kayaks, having a high-quality trailer that we can back up to, hook up, and go is all the work we need. The expert brands that make trailers these days have been through enough iterations to have a perfect product for all levels of paddlers.
The most popular kayaks for fishing are rotationally molded from polyethylene due to their durability and lower cost. Hard shell kayaks are preferred over inflatable kayaks, since they are not susceptible to lure punctures. Generally, kayak fishermen look for stable, durable and comfortable designs. The new generation of twinhull (catamaran) kayaks that was recently introduced into the market is stable enough to enable both paddling and fishing in the standing position. This technological development also solves some ergonomic problems that are associated with sitting for long hours without being able to change positions, and frees kayakers from the need to sacrifice speed to stability, which is another problem that characterizes monohull kayaks.
Before getting into the water, all beginners should first learn how to handle the paddle.The part of the paddle you hold is called the shaft. The proper way to hold a paddle is to place your hands slightly farther than shoulder width apart on the shaft. Oftentimes, one mistake that beginner kayakers make is holding the paddle incorrectly. One side of the blade is concave and should always be facing you. Slice the paddle blade vertically into the water, keeping a relaxed grip on the shaft with your knuckles pointed upward. Keeping this form will put more power into your paddle without exerting more energy.
Hauling more than a couple of kayaks from point to point, whether for a group paddle along a nearby shoreline or for shuttling boats/gear to a starting point for a river flotilla, often requires either a caravan of vehicles or the services of a trailer. Besides boats, the shear volume of gear needed can quickly turn an afternoon paddle into a mock expeditionary campaign.
1) You do not need to buy a top of the line kayak, but you do need to talk to some experienced people about the best kind of kayak for the water you plan to be fishing, combined with your height/weight and paddling ability. I see articles stating that you can start with a $200 kayak. That’s true, for some folks. But I’ve fielded a lot of phone calls from people who bought big box store kayaks that can’t carry their weight. It helps to talk to people who know kayaks, before you buy.
I started working at Appomattox River Company in May of 2012. That fall I had moved into a marketing-digital role and begun looking for ways to increase our brand awareness. Appomattox River Company already had a good name in the paddle-sports industry, and I wanted to find more people and draw them into the fun. I paddled some canoes as a kid, and I’d paddled a little whitewater, but there were so many long-time canoeists and whitewater paddlers in the company here in Farmville, that I decided to tackle a different scene.
Every single kayak trailer has a maximum weight rating. If you already have a kayak it’s important to check it’s weight as to not exceed the trailers limit. The average kayak will weigh around 40 lbs while the typical single large kayak trailer can be be rated for a weight of about 200 lbs. If you exceed the limit you can risk it breaking in transit.

My goal is to share the great, growing sport of kayak fishing and to support brands I value and use. Helping new kayak anglers get started is important, particularly in sharing tips and information on kayaks, gear and baits. Currently already working with various nationally known bait company brands to help with grass roots promotion of their products.
Try to avoid bringing cloth clothing like t-shirts or jeans. Once it gets wet (from water or sweat) it will stay wet for a long time – not a comfortable experience in Polar weather!What will I see?You’re definitely going to see a whole lot of beauty – rugged shorelines with snow-capped mountains in the background, pristine untouched shorelines, icebergs that can turn the water beneath you a brilliant blue. The quiet nature of kayaking also makes it an excellent opportunity to encounter wildlife.
Buying a pre-built trailer is often quite a bit more expensive. For those who are on a tighter budget, buying one that you will have to build yourself is a much better option. Like most other things, buying online is a great way to reduce your price and get the best deal possible. If price is of serious concern to you then you may want to opt for a used trailer. These will typically run quite a bit cheaper but can be quite a bit harder to find.
"Ordered several items including a Feelfree Lure 11.5 with Overdrive Pedal Drive. After waiting over one month the order finally arrived but the Pedal Drive was missing. NO SMALL ISSUE SINCE THIS IS NEARLY HALF OF THE KAYAK COST. ( My 13.5 Feelfree Lure was $1000.00 less) . After holding with customer service for 6 minutes "Zack" cam on the line. I explained the my entire order arrived in excellent condition but the Pedal Drive was missing. After some discussion..."
Do I need to be an experienced kayaker? How physically fit should I be?The amount of experience that we ask that you have depends on the cruise you choose. If you have no experience at all then we’d suggest one of our Basecamp voyages where we’ll happily introduce even the most inexperienced kayakers to this wonderful new experience.Kayaking in Spitsbergen © Pete Gwatkin-Oceanwide Expeditions
Avid kayakers can enjoy the features of sit-in kayaks, which may be equipped with an adjustable seat, molded-in cup holders, padded cushioning and roomy cockpits for extended time on the water. Sit-in kayak privide a little more protection from your environment while paddling, but can be more difficult to get in and out of. When browsing through kayaks for sale, you can find kayaks and canoesto help customize or store your kayak.

Most of the Aleut people in the Aleutian Islands eastward to Greenland Inuit relied on the kayak for hunting a variety of prey—primarily seals, though whales and caribou were important in some areas. Skin-on-frame kayaks are still being used for hunting by Inuit people in Greenland, because the smooth and flexible skin glides silently through the waves. In other parts of the world home builders are continuing the tradition of skin on frame kayaks, usually with modern skins of canvas or synthetic fabric, such as sc. ballistic nylon.
