The new SeaDek kayak non-skid kits have been a huge hit and we are adding more patterns as quickly as we can. One question we’ve been getting a lot is how to template a kayak yourself. We will be putting together an instructional video very soon but here are a few photos from recent templating jobs.
The most important thing is getting the template material nice and flat on the surface to be templated. This requires a good deal of trimming with scissors or a razor. Once flat, tape the mylar material securely to the deck and trace the area where you would like a pad with a sharpie marker. Note bow, stern, port and starboard orientation, number the parts and write your contact info one the template. Send it back to us and we’ll get started on your custom pad!
Be sure to check our store first to make sure we don’t already have your pattern: http://www.seadek.com/c-97-kayak-non-skid-pads.aspx

We are always working on something new around the SeaDek factory. While we’ve done quite a few projects in the automotive industry, we haven’t done a lot in the motorcycle segment. This show-floor display mat is for MX and off-road motorcycles fitted with parts from Pro-Wheel racing Components (http://www.prowheelracing.com/).

Just received this photo from Events/National Promo Team Manager, Henry Cecil. SeaDek manufactures the faux teak non-skid pads seen on all Nautique boats (http://nautique.com/). We also create custom event, dealer and team rider pads throughout the year for advertising and promotions.
George Poveromo (http://georgepoveromo.com/) is a world-renowned angling authority, National Seminar host, television host, and Editor-At-Large for Salt Water Sportsman Magazine. We’ve been working with him for years providing custom pads for his Makos. Here are two of the latest custom anti-fatigue pads just coming off the CNC machines. You’ll be able to see them both in person at the 2014 Miami International Boat Show (http://www.miamiboatshow.com/).

These photos of two fully customized Hobie Pro Angler kits came to us from our friend Steve up in Georgia. An avid kayak fisherman, Steve was good enough to work through some initial hiccups on our end in the beginning of this project and we appreciate that. In the end these kits turned out pretty spectacularly.
We can make non-skid pads for just about any kind of kayak. First check on our online store to make sure it isn’t already in the catalog: http://www.seadek.com/c-97-kayak-non-skid-pads.aspx
If it’s not on the list you can simply order a template kit and we’ll work with you to get a custom pad made: http://www.seadek.com/c-9-template-kits.aspx

“Hey seadek guys, its Joe Harrison, Soflobro69 on Instagram, with the Native Slayer 14.5 with the army camo seadek. First off love the product guys! So glad you all decided to enter the kayak market. Bought the product back in September and installed it on my Slayer and instantly liked it. I spend a lot of my time stand up sight fishing for redfish out here in Galveston Texas during the school year and back home in Fort Pierce Florida during my breaks. The seadek looks awesome on the kayak, makes it stand out from the rest, keeps the deck cool and quiet as well as provides plenty of traction for my feet while standing. Heres what pictures I have of the Slayer with the SeaDek I took after I installed it. I don’t take many pictures of the kayak from the outside when im here in Texas because if I get out of the boat I usually sink up to my knees in marsh mud! But ill be heading back home to Florida and the Indian River next week and could take more and better pics of the kayak with the seadek in it, better scenery than my uncles driveway. Anyway heres what ive got, thanks for the interest,
Buy one for yourself today: http://www.seadek.com/c-97-kayak-non-skid-pads.aspx

We just completed some custom pads for our friends over at Aktiv Boot (http://www.aktivboot.de/) in Germany. They’ve teamed up with SeaDek, Roswell Wake-Air and Nautique Boats to display a fully loaded Nautique 200 and Nautique 210 at Boot Düsseldorf in January, 2014 (http://www.boat-duesseldorf.com/). The kits turned out great and we’ll be sure to post more photos once the pads are installed. You’ll also be able to touch and feel them at the show.
