What is the advantage of a sit-on-top kayak?
Sit-on-Top Pros & Cons
Sit-on-tops are the most user-friendly. They’re very stable, easy to get in and out of and there is no feeling of confinement on them. They’re also self-bailing, which means they have small holes (called “scupper holes”) that allow the water to drain right through them.
Which is safer sit in or sit on kayak?
Whether you choose a sit-inside or a sit-on-top kayak, you are sure to enjoy paddling. Both style kayaks are equally safe. Stability will depend on other design factors such as hull design and size. (see “how to choose a kayak”).
What is the safest kayak?
Ocean Kayak Malibu Two Tandem Sit-On-Top Recreational Kayak
All of this, along with excellent portability, earned it the top spot on our list. Using the Malibu Two is very safe, thanks to its wide and flat hull design. It’s made of single-layer polyethylene, which is very strong and won’t dent or crack.
