Airfoil Sail Rigs for Kayaks
Sailing Outrigger/Catamaran Style
Polynesians have been using them for over 2000 years. Without outriggers to stabilize their narrow dugouts, they would have never mastered the swollen waters of the ocean, never spread through the islands of the South Pacific...
An outrigger transforms any paddlecraft into a stable, almost untippable platform. A platform which provides immeasurable security when crossings take you miles from shore, qualls surprise you out in open water, or rip tides froth at your boat. A platform from which you can fish, swim, snorkel, sunbathe... A platform to which you can attach our high-performance airfoil sails.

Why so many people choose Easy Rider’s sailing options...
More and more people would like to sail, but are discouraged by the high cost and burden of owning a regular sailboat... The solution: Easy Rider’s sailing options!

Our sailing kayaks don’t require much sail area to reach speeds rivaling regular sailboats. They are seaworthy, sporty, easily controlled, and loads of fun. Furthermore, these boats can be easily cartopped and can be hand-carried down to the water -- no boat trailer nor boat-launch hassles.
Seasoned sailors are surprised that our sailing craft respond to the slightest puff of air, and they marvel at the efficiency of our fully-battened, high-aspect ratio airfoil sails.

Highly refined sailing systems, easy to operate...
