Written by

Owning a kayak is great for the freedom it gives you to go out on the water whenever time and weather permits you. Unfortunately, most kayaks are also rather large, which makes storage somewhat of an issue when it isn’t in use. Unless you have a huge property with plenty of space to keep your kayak tucked away safely, you’ll have to make the most of what you have. The following list shows the type of do-it-yourself approaches that kayak enthusiasts have come up with to keep their prized possessions out of the way and safe from damage.
