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.

    I had to write a review because I love my anchor so much. We often have a slight breeze and this has come in handy each and every time. My friends and I have barged our boards with up to seven of us and one anchor held us, not much wind. I recently purchased three for a grab favorite things party and they were first gifts to be taken!

    Game changing accessory

    Having this lightweight anchor and dry bag enables me to throw out an anchor and go for an open water swim in areas where I’d have to paddle out first, but have nowhere to tie up my board. It’s also great for lounging and doing SUP yoga. With the anchor and a bungee, I can tether another board so we can have a picnic on the lake. Having this anchor lets you get more out of your paddling. I got the orange color, am happy with the quality and the amount of rope, as well as the float buoy and the hook. Some pleased you guy an anchor you only get an anchor. This is the whole setup!

    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.
