Be sure to empty the kayak of all water. The kayak may be stored on its side or in a vertical position temporarily.Storage in these positions for an extended period of time could cause flattening or deformation in the side of the hull.


 In addition to emptying all water out, you should clean the kayak by rising with freshwater especially if the kayak has been used in salt water or becomes muddy. Store out of direct sunlight and indoors, if possible. UV exposure can shorten the lifespan of any kayak and can degrade its finish. Kayaks can be stored slung on their sides via web straps,positioned 1/3 of the way along the hull. Be sure to not leave straps or ropes tightly wound around the hull for extended periods of time as it may cause deformation.Your kayak can also be stored hull up on parallel bars with weight supported evenly throughout its length.
