2017 Wish List for Christmas
Keep your boards safe from the Grinch with these strong, durable, reinforced stainless steel straps from Kanulock. Comes with the ability to lock your boards on your car to keep them safe outside. Included with the package is a set of keys unique to your straps.
These straps are great for the paddler who is lazy… oh wait, no, I mean, too busy to take their boards off of their racks as soon as they get home. Or if they’re the type to grab some lunch after a long paddle. With the added feature of reinforced stainless steel straps and the ability to key lock the release mechanisms, these straps are sure to keep the avid paddler’s boards safe for extended periods of time on their racks. The straps themselves are durable and soft- ensuring that no damage will come to the board if pulled down tightly. Comes in 11′ and 13′ sizes! Highly recommended from the Walk on Water team!!!
9. M-16 Onyx Inflatable Belt Pack
Unique design keeps stand-up paddleboarders (SUP), anglers, boaters, and other paddlers safe without compromising movement! 16 gram CO2 charge provides 17 lbs. of buoyancy – the oral inflation tube can be used to provide additional buoyancy up to 26.5 lbs. when fully inflated. Extremely low profile.Our Review:We at Walk on Water have been avid racers for many years. And as such, we’ve tried every inflatable belt pack on the market. While most suffice in that they will keep you floating in case of an emergency, the Onyx offers something the others do not- comfort. The sleek, small, and almost weightlessness of it really allow the racer and cruiser to feel comfortable while knowing there is something to inflate if the need should come. The only downfall is the Onyx’s flotation device is a bit smaller than the other brands. However, it does inflate up to 26.5lbs of buoyancy which is very sufficient in keeping you afloat even in the toughest conditions. And at $89.99 the price sets it apart as well!
8. Kore Dry Covers
1-sided board cover to reduce overheating and sun exposure. Made from Koredry lycra for greater durability. Over 30º cooler vs. uncovered boards. Slips on in ten seconds. 4-way stretch to 1.5 feet. Fits in a backpack. Great for transportation on cars. Reduces discoloration. Made in USA.Our Review:If you’re looking for a quicker and easier way to cover your board after getting out of the water- this is the cover for you! While board bags have their purpose, and a little extra padding to go along with it, the Kore Dry covers offer convenience, flexibility, and the added benefit of keeping your board cool in the hot summer sun! Which, if anyone has done that knows, the dreaded de-lamination tends to pop up on a salty board in the hot temps. Also, these make great travel buddies if you’re going to be storing your board on your racks for an extended period of time. Trust us, they have been tested to their limits in Costa Rica of last year. Our boards wouldn’t have made it without one!!
7. Rinse Kit
With no pumping and no batteries, RinseKit delivers a pressurized spray for up to three minutes. RinseKit stores the strength of a regular household spigot or sink (with adapter) and can be quickly filled with hot or cold water. RinseKit’s patented design features the eon™ pressure system that holds up to 2 gallons of water with a spray nozzle that offers seven different settings from jet stream to soaking shower.
Surfing Assateague is fun. Surfing Assateague in winter is still very fun. Surfing Assateague with no showers after an awesome salty session is slightly less fun. But that’s okay! Because the Rinse Kit now solves that problem!! Fill it with some hot water, leave it in your vehicle and when its time to get going with the rest of your day, you now have a portable shower to get the sand and salt off of your body from the convenience of the parking lot. Added bonus- the ability to wash your board off for clean storage and no tracking sand back into your house. For those who love winter surfing- the Rinse Kit is for you!!

We at Walk on Water believe it isn’t so much about who wins or who loses- rather, it’s about bringing people together to experience a beautiful outdoor activity, share in the struggle and triumph of the course, and the feeling of exaltation once you and your fellow racers cross the finish line. It is very much a shared experience, blurring the lines between age and skill level.
