Our spray skirts for racing kayaks and fitness boats
All spraydecks that you find on our website, are intended for racing boats and touring racing boats. In contrast to sea kayaks, you sit in a racing kayak with your knees closed and having them elevated slightly over the cockpit rim. Therefore you need a spraydeck that is not completely stretched over the cockpit, but offers some space for the knees. At the same time you want to have enough freedom of movement for the leg drive. And when riding a wash, it may even be necessary to pull one foot slightly backwards without the spraydeck stretching or even slipping off the cockpit rim. All our spraydecks are waterproof with taped seams. However, the Padler Marathon spraydeck does not have a waterproof zipper.
Spray deck sizes for racing kayaks
All of our spray skirts are suitable for all racing kayak types and models. Old racing kayaks with a width of 51 cm are an exception. They can have larger cockpits. In this case you can choose a spraydeck that is also suitable for touring racing boats.
