If you are looking for a great way to stay cool this summer, then you may be thinking about going out on the open water. There are plenty of aquatic activities you can enjoy this summer. Even though it is fun to go snorkeling, scuba diving, and swimming, many people like to take advantage of an inflatable paddleboard or a kayak. You may think that you need to choose between these two activities; however, this is not necessarily the case. There are situations where you can actually attach a seat to your inflatable paddleboard. What do you need to know about this process?
You Can Attach a Kayak Seat To Your Paddleboard
First, you can attach a seat to your stand-up paddleboard, making it similar to a sit-on kayak. It is important to remember that this is not possible with every inflatable stand-up paddleboard. For the Dunn-Rite seat, you must look at the product description on the seat and then choose the correct inflatable stand-up paddleboard. That way, you know you purchase the right stand-up paddleboard to meet your needs. Two inflatable stand-up paddleboards in our line-up will currently accommodate the kayak seat, the blue with white striped inflatable SUP and the white with blue stripes inflatable SUP.
How Do You Attach a Kayak Seat To Your Paddleboard?
Remember that the exact attachment process can vary depending on the specific model you have. In general, there are a few steps you need to follow. These include:
- First, you need to look at your inflatable stand-up paddleboard and make sure the kayak seat is positioned properly. You should see two sets of straps that you are going to use during this process.
- Next, you need to attach the rear straps to the board itself. Make sure the straps are secure. You do not want them to fall off.
- After this, you may need to rearrange the seat to attach the front straps. Again, make sure they are secure.
- Finally, make sure you are comfortable. You may need to adjust everything one final time before you get in.
Play with the seat a bit to make sure it is secure. Then, get in the seat and get comfortable. You might need to adjust the seat slightly before you head out.
Why Should You Attach Your Kayak Seat To Your Paddleboard?
There are several reasons why you may want to attach a kayak seat to your paddleboard. For example, you may be simply looking for a way to go out on the water with other people. If a kayak seat is attached to your paddleboard, it is easier for you to have a conversation because the person is more relaxed. The optional kayak seat attached to your stand-up paddleboard allows for a more laid-back ride, making it easier to hold a conversation or do other things that require extra gear.
You can also do plenty of other activities with the optional kayak seat on your inflatable SUP. For example, some people like to go SUP fishing, which is more manageable from a seated position. Some people might even want to use a camera to take pictures of birds and wildlife.
Safety Must Always Come First
Finally, it is essential to remember that safety always has to come first. Before you decide to go out on the water, you need to double-check the kayak seat one more time. Make sure it has been attached firmly to the inflatable SUP. When you use this for the first time, go slowly for a few minutes to get acclimated to the straps. Then, you can speed up.
