For the Happy Paddler in Your Family
Looking to gift a versatile workout to the paddler in your life? BKC’s SUPYN is perfect--as they can paddle upright, seated, or from the kneeling position on this vessel. Stand-up paddle boards (or SUP’s) are the perfect mix of portability and functionality, and BKC has taken it one step further by adding additional comfort via the on-board seat.
Traditional SUP’s are almost a cross between a surfboard and a sit-on-top kayak, but the BKC SUPYN is the best parts of a traditional SUP and a sit-on-top kayak. It can get into all the places a traditional kayak can’t, but it still has the comfort, stability, and storage of a kayak. Whatever type of SUP or kayaking exercises you enjoy, can be accomplished with this board. Don’t hesitate to give it to your aquatic paddling lover!

Looking to Improve Your Fishing Kayak Set-Up? Invest in a Trolling Motor!
A trolling motor is the perfect way to optimize an angling adventure. They’re quieter, smoother, and less fatiguing than a pedal motor or paddle, so you’re able to be as stealthy as possible on the water. Whether you’re treating yourself or a fellow kayak fisher friend to this motor, you’ll both see a drastic improvement in your fishing game because of it.
This Neralls trolling motor is compatible with all BKC PK series kayaks, so it will be an easy install if you have a kayak in this series. It combines prevision control, lightweight construction, and quiet operation to give the ultimate angling experience.
The fish will never see you coming, and you’ll have the power to be out on the water as long as you’d like with this upgraded trolling motor.
