Kayak/SUP/Surfboard Trailer

These trailers use 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

This trailer now uses a rook rack cradle that can be adjusted for width to suit your kayak from narrow racers to wide doubles or sit-on tips. The length is customised to suit your kayak so it balances well on the trailer wheels. 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). 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 & Surfboard Trailer

These use the same 100l bin as the light weight trailer. A surfboard is strapped to the top of the bin. A SUP uses the bin top and also has a nose support. The tow bar can be customized for any length of paddleboard.

$320 for SUP trailer with the nose support

$280 for surfboard trailer without the nose support
