We purchased a Paddlesport Trailer from the Dock Doctors, and we're very happy. Not only is the trailer light, maneuverable, and versatile, the Dock Doctors' customer service is great! We had some trouble getting the trailer lights to work with our vehicle. We returned to the shop, and one of their staff stayed with us--after hours--until he resolved the problem. They are friendly, helpful and dedicated!

Kayaking is a versatile watersport is a great way to spend quality time with friends and family while exploring nature from a new point of view. The EZ Dock family is full of water enthusiasts who have fallen in love with the adventure that an afternoon of kayaking offers. If you’re looking for a fun and exciting way to enjoy the open water, kayaking just may be the perfect new hobby for you. To get started, we’ve pulled together the tips and tricks we believe beginning kayakers should know.

I love the new trailer. It traveled very well and I now have it loaded and ready to go to the New Jersey shore for a weekend of kayaking. The quality is tremendous. It is no doubt the best made trailer that I have come across and the design seems to work very well for my needs. For the first time I can have a loaded trailer connected to the car and able to lift the back hatch without the need to unload the kayaks. It will also serve me well in that I can use it to haul many other items in the bed. I love it!

The body of the paddler must also be taken into account. A paddler with a low center of gravity will find all boats more stable; for a paddler with a high center of gravity, all boats will feel tippier. On average, women and children have a lower COG than men.[6][8][9] Unisex kayaks are built for men.[7] A paddler with narrow shoulders will also want a narrower kayak.
You should expect any amount of wind, from a small breeze to a huge gust, to have some effect on your kayak. This is normal, and you can readily compensate for it. To conserve energy, paddle with the wind and not into it if you can. You can also paddle harder, use a rudder or add an extra stroke to your downwind side in order to make adequate wind corrections.

Whether you’ve been kayaking for years or just starting out in the kayak life, if you have a kayak, you need a way to transport it. In fact, there’s a good chance that you’ll often need a way to transport more than one; you’ll probably want to go with friends and family, too. At the very least, consider that at some point, you may marry or have children that share in your kayaking adventures. As time goes, it will become more and more apparent to you that you need a kayak trailer.
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.
Kayaks that are built to cover longer distances such as touring and sea kayaks are longer, generally 16 to 19 feet (4.9 to 5.8 m). With touring kayaks the keel is generally more defined (helping the kayaker track in a straight line). Whitewater kayaks, which generally depend upon river current for their forward motion, are short, to maximize maneuverability. These kayaks rarely exceed 8 feet (2.4 m) in length, and play boats may be only 5–6 feet (1.5–1.8 m) long. Recreational kayak designers try to provide more stability at the price of reduced speed, and compromise between tracking and maneuverability, ranging from 9–14 feet (2.7–4.3 m).

What’s been missing though is any in-depth discourse on the mechanics of actually fishing out of a kayak, because the bottom line is – it’s different than fishing out of a boat. You’re closer to the water, slightly less stable, sitting down, and at the mercy of the wind and current – all factors that require a little different approach than angling from a boat.
One type, the playboat, is short, with a scooped bow and blunt stern. These trade speed and stability for high maneuverability. Their primary use is performing tricks in individual water features or short stretches of river. In playboating or freestyle competition (also known as rodeo boating), kayakers exploit the complex currents of rapids to execute a series of tricks, which are scored for skill and style.
The size of the trailer tongue is the distance between the axle and the hitch. Why does this matter? It matters because it determines what type of trailer to get in conjunction to the size of kayak you have.  If you have a longer Sea Kayak or even a tandem you will want a longer trailer tongue length. On the contrary if you have a shorter kayak like a recreational sized yak then you can get away with a shorter tongue length.
Depending on where you’re kayaking, the weather could change in an instant. Although you planned a trip on a perfect day, you should still be aware of what to know about kayaking during times of bad weather. You may not know how hard it is to kayak in a rainstorm until you’re stuck in one, but there are a few kayaking skills and techniques for beginners that can help you avoid trouble and make it safely back to shore.
6) Want to get a great shot of your catch? Get a mount for your camera (Yak Attack or Yak Gear). Attach some fish grips to a T-Reign retractor tether. When you catch that big’un, slap it on the tethered fish grips and let it chill in the water while you get your camera all set up. Press the timer setting and when the camera gets ready to shoot, pull your fish up and it will be fresh for the photo.
Wearing a fishing life jacket for your safety is a given. What else should you wear if you’re planning an all-day fishing trip? Sun protective clothing. In addition to long or short sleeve shirts, we offer hats, neck gaiters, shorts and pants that provide UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) ratings of 30 to 50+. That means they absorb or block UVA and UVB radiation from the sun that not only causes skin damage and premature aging, but increases your risk of skin cancer. This is equally important on cloudy days when most of the sun’s rays still pass through the clouds. You’ll also want to apply (and re-apply as directed) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more to any skin not covered by your clothing. A good pair of sunglasses will also protect your eyes from damaging UV radiation and improve visibility and comfort by filtering out glare.
Malone made this heavy duty Xtralight trailer that has a military grade galvanized steel frame you can trust. With leaf spring suspension you can be assured that your kayaks will be protected even on bumpy roads.

A: This varies from trailer to trailer. The Kayak XTRALIGHT Trailer Package by Malone can support a weight of 275 pounds. While this sounds like a lot of weight, the Auto Racks MicroSport Trailer by Malone can hold a more impressive 350 pounds. Every kayak trailer that you look for will inform you of 2 different weights: the weight of the trailer and the total load capacity.

Once you’ve mastered how to kayak as a beginner, you may want to enhance your skill level and eventually take on whitewater kayaking. We don’t blame you — whitewater kayaking can be an exhilarating experience that allows you to view nature from a perspective like no other. If you get to the point where you’d like to consider taking on this challenge, here are a few whitewater kayaking tips you should know:
Kayaking has always been a great way to relax and enjoy the water, but now more and more people are discovering that it’s also a great way to fish. Kayaks are quiet and can get into places where the fish are hiding—some places so narrow or shallow that motor boats can’t get into. There are lots of options, from sit-on-top and sit-inside to pedal-powered and motorized to hybrid, so explore and then choose the right one for you and the fishing you do.
A: Most kayaks aren’t meant to be locked onto a trailer. You can attach a lock to the strapping system found on most kayak trailers but this will only slow down people looking to steal your gear. This can be ok for a short term stop but we strongly suggest that you don’t leave your car unattended with anything on your trailer. You should do your shopping and prepare for the trip beforehand.

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.

Kayaks can also be classified by their design and the materials from which they are made. Each design has its specific advantage, including performance, manoeuvrability, stability and paddling style. Kayaks can be made of metal, fibreglass, wood, plastic, fabrics, and inflatable fabrics such as PVC or rubber, and more recently expensive but feather light carbon fiber. Each material also has its specific advantage, including strength, durability, portability, flexibility, resistance to ultraviolet and storage requirements. For example, wooden kayaks can be created from kits or built by hand. Stitch and glue, plywood kayaks can be lighter than any other material except skin-on frame. Inflatable kayaks, made from lightweight fabric, can be deflated and easily transported and stored, and are considered to be remarkably tough and durable compared to some hard-sided boats.[9][10]
