Transporting your yak locally!!

Found this on a website, an innovative method of dragging the kayak to the water with what appears to be minimal effort..

Good point - Here it is: https://www.hoverseat.us/#howitworks

The audio is catchy, very nicely done...

Just follow the link in ua5qb's post, then click on the link to the 'Hover Chair' video. During the video it talks about using the Hover Chair to move kayaks around.

Probably doable if you moved your Hover Chair and kayaks over very solid ground .... I don't believe it would be reliable for transporting over grass (although they demonstrate the Hover Chair on grass) ... certainly would be a whole new ball game on a sandy beach :lol:

But from car park, to footpath to boat ramp .... might just work. But once the kayak is on the water, do you take the Hover Chair back to your car or strap it on the kayak :idiot:

I think the best thing is to get to your favourite spot a little earlier and beat the competition to the best car parks :lek:

Happy kayaking all

Taking a lateral approach, imagine hover board with flexible paddle wheel over tyres. Strap in the kayak and it could become a paddle board :lol:
