Function 4 Sports is excited to help you get out there and enjoy the freedom and family fun of being on the water with quality kayaks and canoes. Featuring Emotion Kayaks: Here are a few basics to help you decide which one is right for you….
Sit-On-Top kayaks feature an open cockpit, which makes entering and exiting the kayak easier, even in open water.
The paddler sits on the top deck with minimal constraints.
All Emotion Kayaks’ Sit-On-Top models are self-bailing. Water that enters the cockpit drains out through scupper holes – tubes that run from the cockpit and tank well to the bottom of the hull. The hulls are sealed making them practically unsinkable. Even if the kayak capsizes, it is easily reentered and you are on your way.
Sit-On-Top kayaks also allow you more freedom of movement, even standing. All of our models are equipped with bungee deck rigging, tank wells or hatches to provide plenty of storage for all of your gear.
The paddler sits in the cockpit of the kayak with his/her legs under the deck.
Most Emotion Kayaks’ Sit-inside models come equipped with adjustable foot bracing and have large,
oversized cockpit openings for easy entry and exiting.
Sit-inside kayaks are typically preferred by paddlers paddling in cold climate conditions or who want protection from the elements and a drier ride. The use of a spray skirt will prevent splashes, waves and rain from getting in the kayak and keep the paddler dry. This allows you to extend your paddling season into the cooler parts of the year.
Gear is stored below deck and accessed through the cockpit or hatches. Items can also be strapped or latched to the deck for easy access.
Both sit-on-top and sit-inside recreational kayaks make excellent fishing platforms. Emotion Kayaks’ Angler models are outfitted with rod holders and storage options to accommodate all of your fishing gear. Our fishing models come in subdued colors to blend in with the environment while fishing or hunting. Their excellent stability and performance gives anglers the ability to get to spots inaccessible by foot or by larger watercraft.
