Estimates show less than 50% of kayakers carry required and property safety equipment. Required equipment is directed by Transport Canada. All SOT fishing kayaks / operators are required to wear a PFD, carry a signaling device (whistle) and a throw rope.
Additionally we estimate less than 50% of people can reboard their kayak on their own. So we invested significant testing time to see what's available on the market and put it through its paces. In the end we are pleased to now be the Canadian Distributor for Kayak Rescue StepTM. Help us save lives.
