Bring your water sport gear. With Thule's convenient water sport carriers for kayaks, canoes, boards and small boats, you can load and unload quickly and easily.
Kayak carrier, canoe carrier
Kayak and canoe carriers come in a variety of shapes and with different features:
A horizontal carrier will keep your kayak or canoe firmly in place. If you are only planning to carry one boat and want it to have the best support and protection, this is the choice for you. Suitable for heavier fibreglass kayaks and canoes.
A vertical carrier lets you carry more than one boat since a kayak on its side takes up less space on the roof of your car. A vertical kayak carrier is ideal for slightly smaller boats, preferably made out of more durable plastic material.
Lift / load assist
For ultimate comfort, choose a lift-assisting carrier. Some carriers help you by having sliding surfaces so that you can slide your kayak onto the car roof.
For even more assistance, choose a carrier that uses gas assist struts to lift some of the kayak weight onto the roof.
SUP and Surfboard carrier
Got a surfboard or stand-up paddle board? Thule’s carriers for different types of boards are easy to install and load, and provide stable transportation of your load. The Thule Buyer's Guide helps you find a carrier that suits your needs.
Please note that all roof-mounted water sport carriers require rack systems.
