If you are looking for a perfect kayak that will give you the opportunity to have fun with your family, you can give the Sun Dolphin Bali 10′ sit-on kayak a trial. This is a great tool for lakes and rivers.

The kayak is lightweight making it easy to carry. With the well-crafted designs, sturdy materials and assorted features found in this versatile and stable kayak model, no doubt this compact watercraft lineup is a leader in its field.

The KL Industries Sun Dolphin Bali SS Kayak Features

The features of the Bali kayak model are varied and diverse in nature, and below, we will look at each of them in detail and explore the benefits.

Solid Construction

As I mentioned briefly in the intro, the Bali SS employs the sturdiest materials in its construction. Like most KL Industries Sun Dolphin Kayaks, the Bali SS lineup makes use of Fortiflex high-density polyethylene in its exterior construction.

This sturdy outside allows you to store it wet without fear of the material breaking down, and its Fortiflex construction is UV-stabilized so that it does not fade with exposure to the sun.

In addition, the polyethylene materials used on the Bali SS kayak promote the tracking and paddling ability of the compact watercraft. This means that you can now cruise down a lake or river with supreme ease, and maximum stability.

Ample Storage

As an avid paddler, I do not like to go onto the water unprepared for the many unexpected occurrences that are common when your kayak.

That is why I always set out on my water adventures with a variety of gears, a change in clothes, multiple bottles of water, sufficient food and snacks, and my overpriced phone.

Now you might ask me where I expect to safely keep all of my gear and belongings in the Bali SS kayak. The answer will please you. It has a dry storage compartment for keeping all your personal belongings, and shock deck rigging for securing any fishing accessories.

If this is not enough for you, you can take advantage of the Portable Accessory Carrier (P.A.C) which acts as a backpack or tow behind which can store all your extra gear.

Additional Convenience

Like most sit-in kayaks, the Sun Dolphin Bali 10′ sit-on kayak sports a large, and open cockpit which is easy to get in and out of. Additionally, the kayak has a paddle holder for when you want to free up your hands, and adjustable foot braces that allow you to settle comfortably in the kayak.

Whether you are using the kayak for family fun or for fishing, you need a model that will offer a greater level of comfort.
