We love to kayak, and recently added another kayak to our collection which also includes a folding Oru and an inflatable stand up paddle board/kayak. The last two do not require any special storage requirements, but the new hardshell one does.
We decided to create a simple storage stand to keep the kayak off the ground and also at a height where we could simply slide in onto the stand with the kayak cart (wheels) in place.
Read on as we share how we made this kayak stand with the materials we had on hand.
This is the second hardshell kayak storage stand we have built. Both use inexpensive materials but the design are unique to where each kayak is stored.
You can see the first kayak stand here as well as view the video here.
(We initially did not have wheels (kayak cart) for the kayak, but after the first outing with it, we realized it was too heavy to carry. The wheels, which fit into the scupper holes, were a little pricy, but well worth the cost in saving our backs!)
