Bellyaks make wonderful additions to any summer or kids camps. Our boats combine the best elements of swimming and boating. It is easy for the youngest of campers to develop confidence and plenty challenging to engage the older campers. They also allow the less confident swimmers to gain confidence.
You get on, lie down and paddle with your hands. No extra gear. No cockpit to fill with water. No super heavy plastic thing to drag around. It’s exactly like swimming on top of a kayak. Your campers have all of the speed, thrill and skill progression of being able to navigate a boat, but with the ease and safety of prone paddling. Your campers will quickly learn how to navigate the bellyak, and will soon be competent prone paddlers. Here’s more on mastering the basics.
Anywhere from 8-80…one boat to float them all. Your smallest campers can double up on one bellyak, and your older campers can use them for games, fitness challenges, and for those who do these sorts of things, whitewater.
Benefits of the Bellyak:
Swim, Paddle, Wade transitions are seamless…no sprayskirt and self bailing design creates easy (and fast) option, that is also easy ditch if necessary.
