Water Sport Safety Tips From a Hawaii Kayak Rental Shop, Honolulu, Hawaii

Water sports are a delightful way to enjoy the outdoors, whether you prefer kayaking, fishing, or stand-up paddleboarding. Go Bananas Watersports in Honolulu and Aiea, HI, carries all the equipment you need to enjoy a day on the water, from kayak rentals to stand-up paddle boards, as well as the roof racks you'll need to transport it all.

As with any activity on the water, water sports can be dangerous, and the professionals at Go Bananas are here to share some tips to keep you safe:

  • Check The Weather Report: The sun is your friend, and storms and strong winds can cause problems. Check the weather forecast and keep an eye on the sky for any changing conditions before booking your kayak rental.
  • Lifejackets Are Lifesavers: Lifejackets are important, so make sure you wear one when you're out on the water. Even if you can swim, you could find yourself in rough seas or at a distance that's too far to swim back to shore. A life jacket will help you float on top of the water without expending too much energy.
  • Find A Buddy: Kayaking solo is fun, but it's not the safest idea. In addition to making sure your family and friends know where you are going and when you plan to return, it’s best to bring a friend along on the trip.
  • Keep Your Valuables Safe: Only take the essentials with you, and keep what you do take locked away or hidden on your person. For example, there are kayak accessories that hold credit cards or cash, and waterproof pouches that can be worn around your neck or zipped up in the sleeve of a wetsuit.

Go Bananas Watersports has everything you need to get out and enjoy the water, from used kayak rentals and sales to fishing kayaks and stand-up paddle boards.
