The adjustable footbrace kit would be a great choice, it works great. The inflatable foot brace is only for the front paddler and only if they are short. So it might be useful for your kids when you are out with them. Either skirt is good, but the touring skirt has suspenders and a "small items" mes...

Best way to test it, without submerging, would be to pull the tube out of the kayak and inflate it. Then try and listen for the leak. If the tube is deflating that fast, you should be able to hear an audible hissing. I would check the ends of the tube specifically because that is where the main weld...

The best way to do it is to inflate your kayak to the proper pressure (2.0 psi) or a little more at 2.5 psi and then let your kayak acclimate to the water. Once it has acclimated to the water temperature, add more pressure. I know that it takes more time to do it this way, but its better than riskin...

The only thing that I know of for adding a cup holder would be to add the Accessory Frame System from AE to your kayak. With the frame system installed, you could then add a Scotty 1" rail mount which will hold any of their accessories like their cup holder, rod holder, ect.

Hello Dan, Glad to hear that you are enjoying the performance of your Attack. Here are some answers to your questions/comments. The design of the end caps is necessary for fabrication and assembly of the kayak. Also, having them removable is useful if any repairs or tube replacements are necessary. ...

Hi Fortini, A couple of things to evaluate that will probably resolve your issue and get you padding straight. First, no air should be escaping the valves when you remove the pump hose (well...except for a little "shush" as its being disconnected). If you are removing the hose and air is rushing out...

Sounds like you should go with the AF instead of the AFS, mainly because of the more enclosed cockpit. Other than the smaller cockpit and 2 main air chambers, the AF and AFS are essentially the same boat and they both perform the same. As I understand it, the AFS was developed to give paddlers a yak...

Unfortunately, electric pumps do not provide nearly enough pressure. You're looking at maybe 0.8 psi max if you're lucky. The kayak needs 2-2.5 psi to be fully inflated. At the same time, the kayak should not be inflated so full that its rock hard like a bike tire, that could blow out your cover! A ...
