The goal at Bonafide Kayaks is to create kayaks with "ultimate fishability" so the SS127 was designed from the ground up by a team of kayak anglers and engineers.  The unique hull shape was developed to offer an unsurpassed blend of stability, speed, tracking, and maneuverability.  The heart of the kayak is a high/lo seat which is perched high enough to make standing a breeze as well as having a "Junk Drawer" under the seat to hold your gear.  There are too many thoughtful features to list here so you will just have to see for yourself. Because the folks over at YakAttack are behind this project, you know you can count on the quality and functionality.  Virtually all parts are made in-house and in the USA.

We carry new and used kayaks for fishing, fitness, touring, & exploring.  
We also offer  the best accessories to make your paddling safer and more comfortable.  

Why paddlE?


We paddle for lots of reasons but mostly because it's fun.  No matter what kind of paddling you do there is something special about being out  on the water.  Peoples reasons are as varied as the craft they paddle.  

Fishing from a kayak has lots of advantages.  It allows the angler easy access to places where powerboats can't go and no fuel bill.  They can be very stealthy for those who like to site fish in shallow water.  When fighting fish you are just that much closer to the action.   Most of us prefer Sit On Tops for fishing.

The fitness part of paddling doesn't even have to be intentional.   Most paddlers will benefit from those calorie burning stokes while they fish, tour, explore, and have fun.  If you are more of the fitness type paddler, you probably want a sleeker kayak or SUP with more glide.

Surfing and whitewater paddling in a kayak is a quite a rush and probably the hardest type of paddling to get good at.  There are a few kayaks made for surfing and lots made for whitewater. 

Touring in a kayak is like hiking without all that heavy stuff on your back.  Take the day off (or a week), bring enough food and supplies and hit the water.  The longer the trips the longer the boat because they hold more gear and eat up the miles with less effort..

Exploring is for everyone. There are tons of places to paddle and explore on the Treasure Coast.  Take the time to see some new ones.  

Fun with family and friends Go fishing at dawn with the boys, take the kids out for a picnic on an island, Go on a paddling trip with a buddy or your local kayak club.  It is all possible from a kayak or paddle board.  Just get out there and the fun will meet you on the water.


safely Transport kayaks, Sups, bikes, surfboards & more. We have years of experience to help you to choose & install a roof rack system or trailer that will work best for your needs.

standup paddle boards (Sups) are just plain fun.  the sport is growing like crazy because anyone can do it.  Surf or flat water it is a great core workout.  even bring your fishing pole, dog, or child.
