    Makes it easy!

    The conversion kit makes using my new board easy in environments I'm not strong enough to stand up paddle in.

    Kayak conversion kit

    The kayak conversion sear and second paddle end easily converted our Komodo board to a kayak. Great fun

    Just mounted the kayak seat and new bungee anticipating the new season. Lake Erie is still ridiculously cold so we haven't gone out yet. We will be taking them out Memorial Day weekend if not sooner in the warmer waters around Columbus with our son.

    Conversion seat

    Now I can kayak when I need a leg break, very impressed with the design and quality.

    Great function

    This is my son's favorite way to use our paddle boards. He could spend all day paddling around the lake and never tirer. And if he wants to stand up on the board he just unclicks the front rings and stuff its in the bungees and is ready to go.

    Perfect fit!

    Perfect for my iSUP rides on the lake, and easy to fold down and roll up along inside my deflated board, and folds down easy so I can move between kayak to standup mode with ease. The paddle didn't work with the oval shaped handles of the SUP paddle that came with my board. Ended up finding a kayak paddle at my local thrift store for $15 so the extra paddle wasn't needed. I should've just bought the seat minus the extra paddle, but didn't know that until it arrived. The seat was worth every penny, so happy with this product and it's nice durable design.

    Great Addition to an Already Great SUP!

    Love the boards, love the company, and love the kayak addition. Easy to install and remove, so your experience can be whatever you want it to be in an instant. Everything packs easy into the storage bag, so can always be with you at any location. I tend to share all my toys with friends and strangers alike, and the kayak conversion makes the experience easily accessible for anyone. Highly recommend adding this upgrade with any board order.

    Great for Long River Adventures

    My family and I spend a lot of time on the Allegheny River and this seat is perfect to transition your board into a kayak for more rapid water or long adventures. I have done 15 miles using this seat and it makes the trip enjoyable. One thing I must say, if you are on the thinner side as me, you might want to add an extra cushion to the seat. I use a little blow-up camping pillow. I'm so glad I invested in this and use it all the time.

    I purchased two kits to use on mine and my husband’s paddle boards. We both have 11’ Adventure boards. They turned out to be very useful right away. We spent two days on lake Buchanan in Texas. And we had to use the kits because the the waves were about 2-3 feet high and the wind was around 10 mph with 19 mph gusts. We didn’t venture far out of the cove, but used the time for practicing paddling and moving against the wind in a straight line. It was great!

    First time boarders!

    If there were more stars I would give them! Thank you so very much for sending the missing conversion kit from my order! We have had so much fun out on the water with the paddle board/kayaks we purchased from Gili! Paddling on a large, somewhat choppy lake I felt very securely attached to the board. First time out we strapped our smaller soft sided cooler on the back, which worked although we had to keep moving the bungee cord to get in it. Came home and did some research and ordered the large cooler which straps right to the board as well as more cup holders. Once it was strapped in place it was easily opened and closed without having to adjust the bungees. Very impressed with the quality and versatility of the boards! I just ordered two more conversion kits so that my grand daughters can go with us! I would highly recommend these inflatable paddle boards for anyone, like us, who has no way of transporting a regular board! Plus, these can be used as stand up paddle boards as well as kayaks! I was also surprised at how quickly we received them. I figured that with COVID restrictions it would be a longer wait. Got them in about 6 days! Deborah H

    Just what I needed

    I paddle with a small child and dog. Standing isn't always an option so I tried this conversion kit and so glad I did! The seat was easy to put on the board and my daughter loves not getting extra wet by having a paddle switch sides over her head. The little zipper bag is perfect for holding my fin, ankle strap and a two smaller water bottles.

    Kayak Kit

    I haven’t used it yet but can tell it will perform. The seat is well made and the paddle is equal in quality as the standup version. Gili makes very good stuff. This will be my summer on the sound. Stoked.
