common questions

What are the advantages of using an inflatable kayak compared to a traditional hard kayak?

One of the biggest advantages of an inflatable kayak is its portability and ease of transport, and you don't have to think about a roof rack or trailer. With an inflatable kayak, you can store it easily without it taking up too much space, for example in the storeroom, the tailgate of the car or in the summer house. In addition, it is significantly lighter than a traditional hard kayak, which makes it easier to handle both on land and on the water.
Another great advantage of an inflatable kayak is the possibility of spontaneous paddling. You can when you want to pack your kayak and go on a paddling expedition, you don't have to plan in advance with roof brackets or the like. All you need is your inflatable kayak, a pump, and a good place to paddle.

How long does it usually take to inflate an inflatable kayak and pack it down after use?

It all depends on the model and size of your inflatable kayak, but it usually takes no more than a few minutes using the pump that comes with the kayak. Packing down the kayak after use is easy and doesn't take long. However, it is important to let the kayak become completely dry before you fold it up and pack it into the kayak bag to avoid mold or other things growing on it during storage.

Can an inflatable kayak be used in the sea and on rivers, or is it only suitable for still water?

An inflatable kayak can be used on both still water and in the sea, but it is important to choose a kayak that is suitable where it will be used the most. An inflatable kayak for rapids, for example, usually has a narrower shape to be able to maneuver quickly and smoothly between obstacles and through currents. For paddling on calm rivers, a wider design may be suitable as it provides more stability and is easier to handle in calm water. These kayaks are also often larger and more spacious to accommodate more people and more gear.

What material is an inflatable kayak made of?

Inflatable kayaks are made of high-quality PVC material and the bottom (ie the hull) is made of a so-called "drop-stitch" material consisting of thousands of nylon threads that are woven together. It gives the kayak extra stiffness and stability that makes it possible to paddle in more challenging conditions. The material is highly resistant to edge impact and to UV rays, which means that they do not fade or crack so easily.

What is the recommended maximum weight for an inflatable kayak?

The recommended maximum weight for an inflatable kayak can vary depending on the model and manufacturer, but roughly speaking, an inflatable kayak can handle between 100 – 300 kg, which includes the weight of paddlers, equipment and cargo. It is important to remember not to exceed the kayak's maximum weight as this can lead to it losing stability and becoming difficult to handle on the water.
