There's no better-engineered or safer light for stand-up paddlers after dark.
The Kayalite-SUP® is a portable, deep water submersible (IPX8 rated waterproof), buoyant, high-visibility LED 360° light designed for secure attachment to stand-up paddleboards. The Kayalite-SUP is the same design as our top-rated Kayalite® kayak light, with the addition of a SUP-Clip compatible with a standard SUP leash plug.
Unlike lights depending on loss-prone suction cups, magnets or rigid mounts, the Kayalite-SUP is virtually loss-proof and indestructible, capable of taking a direct impact, paddle smack or accidental flip of a board in shallow surf. A tension cable holds the mast upright while preventing it from snapping or accidentally detaching.
The Kayalite-SUP clips to a leash plug, FCS fin plug, D-Ring, or any existing eyelet on deck. To secure, you simply pull the tension cord taut with a single hand and cinch it on the Kayalite-SUP's built-in jam cleat. In a pinch, the Kayalite-SUP's universal clip can even be fastened to a taut bungee or deck rigging.
Made in the USA of high-strength ABS, Lexan, rubber o-rings, marine-grade stainless steel fittings. Meets U.S. Coast Guard Rule 25 regulations for SUP, kayak, SOT, surfski, canoe, scull and vessels under oars. Provides 100+ hours of use on 3 AA batteries (included), LED life 10,000 hours. Stands 18 inches tall (45 cm) and weighs approx 13 oz.
JUST IN: In 2022, Popular Mechanics rated the Kayalite as #1 among The 7 Best Kayak Lights for Safer Summer Boating (click here to view in a new window). We at Kayalu were not informed of the evaluation process nor did we provide a complimentary product for evaluation.
