Kayaking 101


There Is No Bow Foam Wall In The Front Of My Boat. Should There Be?

You may notice some older recreational models include bow foam flotation while the newer models of these boats do not.

After a review of flotation in (brand) recreational kayaks and comprehensive testing against the American Boat and Yacht Council ABYC H-29 guidelines, a decision was made to remove the standard foam wall from the bow area on select models as all Perception kayaks are well above the required limit.
