I mounted these to aluminum fence posts with sheet metal screws. The brackets are sturdy and covered in foam to protect the kayak. The shape works well and holds the kayak securely. I like the straps and the ability to swing the brackets flush to the fence when not in use.
I bought this board for my son who likes to both stand up and use it a kayak- great value nice board
These are great starter kayaks. The one drawback is that the included paddles are short/not nice, but otherwise definitely get the job done. They fit me (5'9", 170) and my partner (6'2", 225) comfortably.
