What is a Sit-On-Top Kayak? Sit-On-Top kayaks feature an open cockpit, which makes entering and exiting the kayak easier, even in open water. The paddler sits on the top deck with minimal constraints.
All Emotion Kayaks’ Sit-On-Top models are self-bailing. Water that enters the cockpit drains out through scupper holes - tubes that run from the cockpit and tank well to the bottom of the hull. The hulls are sealed making them practically unsinkable. Even if the kayak capsizes, it is easily reentered and you are on your way.
Sit-On-Top kayaks also allow you more freedom of movement, even standing. All of our models are equipped with bungee deck rigging, tank wells or hatches to provide plenty of storage for all of your gear.
In a sit-inside kayak the paddler sits in the cockpit of the kayak with his/her legs under the deck. Most Emotion Kayaks’ Sit-inside models come equipped with adjustable foot bracing and have large, oversized cockpit openings for easy entry and exiting.
Sit-inside kayaks are typically preferred by paddlers paddling in cold climate conditions or who want protection from the elements and a drier ride. The use of a spray skirt will prevent splashes, waves and rain from getting in the kayak and keep the paddler dry. This allows you to extend your paddling season into the cooler parts of the year.
Gear is stored below deck and accessed through the cockpit or hatches. Items can also be strapped or latched to the deck for easy access.
