Best Inflatable One Person Kayaks for 2020


Inflatable one person kayaks can easily be deflated for transport and storage and also inflated prior to use. This is what makes them so popular and this is their main advantage when compared with rigid kayaks.

The list presented here includes Amazon bestsellers only, it will be updated regularly and new models will be added dependent on what becomes a bestseller on Amazon. There may be one or two models in the list that accommodate 2 people, this is just in case that you need more space for gear or if you want occasionally to have somebody with you in the kayak, your dog perhaps. Those are models with a cockpit and a low gravity center which makes them stable.

But a more complete list with 2-person kayaks is available here. Perhaps you might also want to have a look on this bestsellers list with inflatable paddle boards, all nicely packable and easy to use.

If you are a complete beginner in kayaking perhaps you want to know how to enter and exit a kayak. The principles are the same for inflatable and rigid kayaks. So to enter, step into the cockpit and then sit down on the rear deck. Normally, you should put your hands on either side of the rim. Then extend the legs into the cockpit, and move the body forward into the seat.

To exit, do everything in reverse, move your feet from the foot pegs and straighten your legs, put hands on the sides of the rim and lift your body and sit on the rear deck. After that lift your feet out of the cockpit before moving them to either side so that you can stand up.

But some do this a bit differently, perhaps you might want to see how this person is doing this, have a look:

Consider also what to have from clothing, synthetic is always the best for such activities, this means nylon and fleece. As for footwear, a pair of sandals is fine, no need to buy anything special

Make sure to have your personal flotation device which you wear while paddling, designed to provide you with flotation in the event of a capsize. They make them like vests, jackets, and waist packs. They are either a closed cell foam for fixed flotation or inflatable air bladder that can be automatically inflated at will, it is equipped with an air cylinder. Paddles are typically fiberglass and polyethylene. More expensive made of carbon fiber are stronger and lighter.
