At Airkayaks.com, one of the top questions we get asked is: “How do I fold it to get it back in the bag?”
Our first advice is to take a picture when it comes out of the bag.
Dale Simmons of Paddling Places in Florida produced this wonderful video showcasing the proper way to inflate, deflate, and fold an Advanced Elements Advanced Frame Kayak.
For a quick answer on the Advanced elements Advanced Frame, fold in half length-wise, then fold at each end toward the center, then fold in half width wise to get the “manufacturer fold”.
We will be adding our “fold photo” to each of the products on our website during this next season.
In addition to his Inflate, Deflate and Fold Video, Dale has produced a whole series on Advanced Elements Inflatable Kayak Care and Maintenance.
Thanks to Dale for allowing us to post this on our blog.
