The sprayskirt is a valuable piece of equipment that keeps most of the water out of your kayak.
How to use a spray skirt
Always make sure you have your pull tab or rip cord out before getting on the water when using your skirt.
A skirt with a good seal around your waist and the cockpit rim is important in keeping water out from your kayak. Make sure you try the skirt on before you purchase one, most skirt manufacturers will have information on sizing for kayaks on their website, be sure to check and double check this. Speaking to your local kayak store is another good way to ensure you choose the correct skirt for you and your boat.
