Most of the time you will find yourself paddling in moving water conditions on a lake, ocean, or river. Winds, currents, and waves can move your SUP in any direction, but sometimes you just want to stay in the same place! The GILI Kayak Paddle Board Anchor Kit can help you stay fixed to one spot whether you are practicing SUP Yoga, basking in the sun, or perched over your favorite fishing hole.

The Anchor Kit is designed for use specifically with SUPs and other light watercraft. It is lightweight, compact, and made to withstand the tough environments where you decide to drop anchor.

  • Compact: the 3.5 lb 4-flute anchor is the ideal size and weight to secure you in one place while storing easily on your SUP deck when not in use.
  • Easy Storage: folds into a 12” x 3” shape that stores easily into a waterproof storage bag that helps protect you and your watercraft.
  • Durable: 40 ft. of 7mm marine-grade rope is built to last. A PVC buoy provides a visual guide to your anchor line and a stainless steel snap hook makes for easy deployment and packing.
  • High Visibility Rope: We've included high visibility rope with our SUP/Kayak Anchors so it's visible in the water
  • Adaptable: the anchor can be used with any SUP or kayak in almost any environment. The anchor will work in sand, mud, rock, and weed bottoms.
  • Galvanized or Marine Coated: Great for any environment, this anchor comes in a galvanized or coated finish, so it'll last you a lifetime of rust-free use.
  • NEW: 5L Anchor Dry Bag: our anchors now include our durable 5L Anchor Dry Bag
  • NEW: a heavy-duty J-Hook is now included for rapid deployment and release
  • Perfect for Travel: just like our inflatable SUPs, these anchors are amazing when you're on the go. Just toss in your paddle board bag or trunk, and fasten on your SUP's d-ring storage. Unfolding the anchor literally takes seconds!
  • Complete Kit: includes a stainless steel snap hook/D-ring, PVC flotation buoy, high-visibility rope (40 feet), folding anchor, and the NEW 5L Anchor Dry Bag

The GILI Kayak & Paddle Board Anchor Kit is compatible with all GILI SUPs as well as other light, non-motorized watercraft such as kayaks, rafts, and more.

The Blue, Green, and Orange Anchor Kits come with black rope and colored accents. The Galvanized Steel Anchor Kit comes with high-visibility yellow rope.

    Awesome Anchor!

    This is a must have accessory for ANY paddleboard, kayak, or canoe. I fish a lot and the anchor is a lifesaver for when I find the right spot to fish in and winds pick up. I attach it to the side D ring and haven't had any issues. I use a alpine butterfly knot on the line if I want to shorten it and just attached it to the J hook. Great anchor.

    I always carry this on my board because you never know when you might need it! It's compact and works well. I love dropping the anchor and laying out on my board or reading a book for a while. Highly recommend.

    Great Buy!

    Honestly such a great purchase! Now I can take a break while paddle boarding and sit for a second or even do yoga.

    SUP anchor

    The anchor kit is made well, its sturdy and breaks down to save space. The rope is nice and coils up easily. Well done.

    I was the envy of everyone on the river today! What a great little anchor, and a terrific way to choose the perfect spot and stay awhile. Seriously, this made my day.

    Wanted an anchor for awhile and love the GILi anchor. Got the 30 feet of line as more line seems like the better problem to have out on the water. Headed out on my SUP… dropped anchor- literally!- geared up and went for a lake swim! So stinkin’ happy The # of things I can now do on my SUP just increased 4 fold! Paddle, relax, yoga, lunch, swim… Thank you!

    Love the convenience

    We often like to take a dip in the lake when we are out paddle boarding, our lake usually has a bit of wind that causes you to drift. I love the convenience of being able to drop anchor and float in one place. This product performed great!

    Love my new anchor from gilisports, it lets me lounge and lay in the sun without drifting to the other side of the lake!

    Love it!

    It only took a couple times on my board and I knew I needed this! So nice to hang out with a drink!

    Top Notch!

    Literally,, there is a top notch that you can set with a light poundage zip tie for an easy release if the anchor gets stuck!. But the anchor itself is good quality craftsmanship, and comes with a quality rope and float. Even better it has its own bag to store in. Great Job Gili, you keep giving us quality products at reasonable prices.

    Excited for Summer

    I haven't used the anchor yet, but I'm ready for summer to get here to try out. The anchor is compact and folds up easily. This was sold out the summer of 2020 so I made sure Santa put this under the tree to be ready for when the lakes open again.
