If kayak care sounds like work, don't worry ... a little attention goes a long way. There are a few basic things to do and think about to keep your equipment in good shape and soon, it will be routine.
During Paddling Season
First - dragging a kayak on the ground will thin and weaken the kayak material or worse, create holes near the stern of the kayak that will have to be repaired, this is a not recommended!
UV Kayak Protection - just like your skin - you need to protect your kayak from UV sunlight and oxidation. It's a good idea to apply a coat of spray-on UV protection at the beginning and end of the season after it is clean and dry. You can find it at most sporting goods shops.
Cover - your kayak cockpit when you aren't using it - this helps to keep rain and critters out. Dry out the inside before you cover it to keep mold, insects and scum from accumulating.
In Season Storage - if you store your kayak outdoors just for the paddling season - there are several ways to properly store it - (don't forget to dry it out first).
These racks have either fixed curved arms or adjustable straps to secure your kayak against a wall
