Sit on Top Kayaks

At Fatyak we have a number of sit on top kayaks for sale. We believe that sit on top kayaks are the bees knees when it comes to paddling for a number of reasons and are really passionate about our products.

What is a sit on top kayak?

A sit on top kayak is just that; a kayak that you sit on top of, rather than inside of. The paddler is still slightly sunk into the well of the kayak, but getting in and out is very easy.

Why do we believe sit on tops are better than enclosed kayaks?

There are a number of reasons why we think that Fatyak sit on top kayaks are better than closed kayaks, which we go into more detail about here, however the main points are as follows;

Firstly, and most importantly, the kayaker is not trapped in the event of a capsize. Secondly, they are virtually unsinkable, having air between the inner and outer hulls as well as self-bailing scuppers. Thirdly, they are fantastic for carrying kit and equipment with numerous places to store things, both inside watertight compartments and in wells underneath bungee cords.
