How To: Stretch a Sprayskirt (1:36)

To prevent water leakage and implosion, you want a neoprene-deck sprayskirt to fit tight to your kayak cockpit coaming. However, if it's so tight, you have trouble getting it on the rim or pulling it off in an emergency. In this video, we show you how to stretch the skirt a bit.

    Q:

    Is this a good match for a P&H Delphin Sea Kayak?

    I want a neoprene tunnel design to hold tight in surf and rolls, but I'm not sure if there is anything that makes a spray skirt sea or whitewater specific. Seems the main difference between this and the other skirts I've researched is the grab loop - NRS provides more of a "grab handle". Why is this and would the handle still be OK for a sea kayak?

    Thanks!

      A:

      Matt, the Drylander should work fine for your sea kayak. Looking on P&H's site they give the cockpit length and width as internal measurements. Our skirt measurements are to the outside of the cockpit rim. Our reason for a "handle" rather than a loop is two-fold: it doesn't create a possible snag/entrapment issue and it makes it hard to accidentally fold it inside the cockpit where you wouldn't be able to access it in an emergency.

      A:

      Practice in a pond with what you are going to use in combat -- be it
      surf or rapids. For steep (and usually narrow) creeking, I'd look for a
      handle or loop that isn't going to catch on a branch and simultaneously
      pop the skirt and flip the boat. In surf or open water, you just don't
      want it to be in the way.
      Function, not style, and practice with what you are going to use.
      I get nothing for saying this -- in fact, I don't want to get anything
      for saying this -- NRS is really top drawer. I have a bunch of NRS
      stuff that I've used from 1100 miles solo down the Yukon River, to kayak
      surfing off Oahu, to practicing hand rolls on a pond in Deep East
      Texas. If NRS has skirt that fits your boat, you probably won't find a
      better one.
      Tommy T. testing the fit of an NRS skirt -- that skirt was bought for
      that boat and those two are the combo that I use to practice my hand
      rolls -- and that means a fair amount of time upside down in the lake.

      A:

      The difference of sea kayak and whitewater skirt is in the cockpit size aka keyhole and the thickness of the material for strength. Traditionally ww skirts have a larger wider keyhole and the right skirt fits very tightly on to allow the material to hold the edges while in rapids and waterfalls. Sea kayak skirts are usually a thinner material that is for a longer narrower keyhole with sharp keyhole edges. You don't want a skirt that is difficult to stretch on and weaken the fiberglass. They also don't need the strength for ocean waves in comparison. The grab loop difference is really nothing but a nice added feature. Traditionally they were made of an inch wide webbing loop that you could grab or hang the skirt from. NRS made a loop into a handle with rubber so that there was less chance you would forget it and tuck it in the cockpit. This happens a bit too often if you are new and not aware of it and can lead to bad scenarios of kayakers upside down unable to exit their boat. Hope this is helpful.

      Here's what we'd recommend for these boats:
      Dagger Mamba 8.5 - Medium Deck (snug fit), Large Deck (easy fit)
      Remix 69 - Medium Deck (snug fit), Large Deck (easy fit)
      Fun Runner 60 - Large Deck

      A:

      I bought a large for a Pyranha Shiva (cockpit size 36.75 x 19.5 in). It’s snug, but a good fit. You should be good with a Large on the Mamba 8.5.
      I also have a SuperFun (cockpit size 34.5″ x 20.75), and it does not fit that guy. So I am guessing that it won’t fit the Remix 69 or Fun Runner 60. They will be too wide to get the skirt on without serious effort. When you do find one that works (I have a Snap Dragon), it will fit both.
      Happy paddling!

      A:

      Get the large. It’s a tight skirt. you’ll thank yourself for the relative ease that the large provides when fitting to the cockpit. The medium can work, but i suspect, as it was my experience that there will be lots of cursing and about a 50% success rate. The large is plenty tight on the deck and no water pools. The product is super durable. been loving it since I purchased.

      I would go with the larger size...you can always add floatation in the
      cockpit fit you are concerned about implosion. If in doubt order both
      sizes and you can always return one.

      It is a tight fit on my 34x19 kayak. There is still some stretching left.
      Yours is 34.8x18.5. They are close to the same size. I put the back on first
      and give it a good pull near the hips. Then I keep it taunt while letting my
      hands slid to the front. I snap on the front and finish the sides. It pulls
      off easily but stays on well. Verify the return policy.

    Q:

    How do I size NRS skirts for whitewater?

    For example, I have a Jackson Star, cockpit dimensions 19" x 32.5". This is at the upper end of sizing for a small, but in the middle of the range for a medium.

      This skirt definitely will NOT stretch to fit your boat cockpit.  The skirt runs smaller than the cockpit sizes it is specified to fit.  It cannot even fit the size it's advertized to fit.

      Yes, the medium would be too tight. I bought the medium for my wife's

      the large and have been leaving it on the boat to stretch it and seems good
      so we are keeping it. Try the large or maybe a different skirt all
      together. If my cockpit was much larger, I am not sure this skirt would
      work. Very nice skirt though.

          I ordered the small deck because my cockpit rim was clearly within the specs for the small. I had to send it back because it was almost impossible to get on and off. The "pocket" for the rim was perfectly sized but the bungie edge was way to small. NRS customer service was prompt in exchanging it for a medium deck and I am very pleased.

                  I'm new to white water kayaking and it seems to do what it's supposed to do. It was a bit tight at first to get on my cockpit. I have a wavesport fuse 56 with a cockpit size of 34X19 in. I got it wet and fought it on my boat and let it sit over night. Went kayaking the next day and it was much easier to put on. I'm so glad I didn't go with the large cockpit size. It just requires some break in time, it makes a water tight seal. I like nrs and live in lewiston id which is 30min from moscow id. So I'm going to favor them because they're a local company. They make quality gear and rafts. They know their stuff so go with nrs!!!
