Inflation recommendations & precautions
Inflate the floor, then one of the side tubes, then the second one to 50%. Check the overall positioning of the chambers. Then fully inflate it without exceeding 0.1 bar (1.5 psi).
DO NOT OVERINFLATE!
Close the valves well.
Install the 3 keels, unless using on a river containing little water.
In the event of EXTREME HEAT, slightly deflate the kayak out of the water to avoid overinflation, which could damage the kayak.
Do not leave inflated in direct sunlight: risk of overinflation.
In the event of damage to one of the side chambers, open the side tube lengthways using the zip and remove the chamber.
The floor can be uncovered by opening the hook and loop fastenings.
Example 1: the hole is in the side tube; you can use the repair kit to stick on a patch.
Example 2: the hole is located along a seam; visit the workshop of a DECATHLON store to repair or exchange the bladder.
Easy to disassemble and fold
New carry bag, backpack style for short distances.
Easy clip fins.
Deflate the kayak by opening the 3 "Boston" valves.
Fold the lateral tubes down onto the floor.
Roll, starting from the opposite side to the valves to remove the air.
Place the rolled-up kayak into the main compartment of the bag.
Close the zip and tighten using the compression strap.
The seats are high, providing increased comfort for adults in the paddling position.
The seats are to be placed according to the number of persons on board, just behind of the markings printed on the floor.
On the "2" markings (which therefore remain visible) when there are 2 persons on board. On the "1" marking when there is only one person on board.
Ensure that you balance your load to optimise kayak performance.
Patented bow shape: the front and back ends provide good glide. The V-shaped front of the kayak enables smooth entry into the water.

regulations for canoes-kayaks measuring less than 3.50 metres
Is your canoe-kayak inflatable or rigid and is less than 3.5 metres? You have what is called a beach craft.
You must always stay 300 metres from a shelter (any place on the coast where any boat or vessel and its crew can get to safety by anchoring or berthing and leave without assistance).
Buoyancy aids are not mandatory but strongly recommended to make it easier to get back in the boat if you fall out.
More than 3.5 metre canoe-kayak rules
Your canoe-kayak is rigid or inflatable with at least 2 separate air chambers. It measures more than 3.5 metres. It is "sea approved" by the manufacturer.
You can paddle up to 2 nautical miles (approx. 3 km) from shore. You will need a number of safety features.
