All Around

Designed for the casual paddler interested in recreational activities on calmer waters. Many Inflatable Kayaks in this category will crossover and perform nicely in touring, fishing, or other paddling situations.

All Around Inflatable Kayaks will either be a Sit On Top (Open Design), or a Sit Inside (Enclosed Design). Open Design Inflatable Kayaks consist of the largest number of kayaks. The open design consists of a kayak with higher walls – which keeps out some water – but a much more open design (see the Aquaglide Blackfoot 130 for 1-2 paddlers). The benefits include the ability to adjust the seat for optimal performance and easily store additional gear. Open-design kayaks large enough to be paddled tandem can also quickly convert to solo usage by moving the seat without cockpit restrictions. The enclosed hull design is similar to many hard shell kayaks; see the Advanced Elements AE1044 AdvancedFrame DS-XL kayak. The snugger cockpit design keeps excess water and wind from entering the kayak, and also less direct sun.
