Kayak & Paddleboard Trailer

These trolleys can be fitted with 16 inch bike wheels that are suited to cycling along the road to the river/surf. Most other kayak trolleys have small fat wheels with a bush rather than a bearing, making them harder to tow and they wear out quickly with long distances.

Kayak Trailer

Two standard widths are available, 435 mm wide struts for narrower single kayaks, and 550mm apart for sit on tops or wider sea kayaks. I can custom built ones to suit whatever kayak you may have and have an adjustable length towbar system if you want to take boats of significantly different lengths.

The nose of the kayak is strapped to a pad at the front which keeps everything nice and rigid and even heavy double sea kayaks can be towed with ease as demonstrated in our fossil fuel free multisport events (links below). The length of the tow bar extension can be altered to suit the length of the kayak. Typically this is 1400mm for a single kayak (4-4.5m) or 2100mm for a double kayak (>5.5m). It is better to have a slightly longer towbar, rather than shorter, as fish tailing can occur if the end of the kayak sticks out too far behind the wheels.


SUP Stand Up Paddleboard Trailer

These designed for strapping a relatively flat surface on top rather than the very curved hull of a kayak. There is space to attach a deck in front of the axle to strap all your wetsuit & gear. Suitable for any length of paddleboard.
