Oak Orchard's Newest Kayak Carrier!

Gull Wing
... make Kayak Loading an easy, one person Load from rear. Side Loads are more difficult, usually requiring two people and a step stool.






All kayak carriers are not the same!
Neither are all kayak hull shapes the same...
The new "Gull Wing" saddle will outperform all others.
Our large surface of contact will not dent your poly kayak like competitors! Fits 95% of hull shapes when placed near the mid section of any length kayak (most sit-on-top kayaks can be carried upside down on your rack, but it is a more difficult load from the side of the car requiring two people). And yet it's still very soft to cradle your expensive poly or composite kayak. It's tough ABS shape will both support and conform to your kayak's hull shape.

Won't dent your kayak hull like the others. The new "Gull Wing" kayak carriers will outperform all others and fit 95% of all hull shapes. No other saddles have this much surface area to protect your kayak's hull shape against denting. Made of tough ABS plastic with a soft felt surface on top. Gull Wings are the only saddles that allow you to load from the side of your vehicle OR you can slide your kayak forward when loading from the rear of the vehicle. Other brand saddles with rubber or plastic pads actually resist sliding the kayak forward and make loading more difficult.

We offer two gull wing shapes; Choose which fits your kayak hull shape best...
OUR "Gull Wing" kayak saddle has a 19" x 22" felt padded surface; V shape [center is 3" lower than sides]. Gull Wing saddles fit any kayak with a more rounded or vee bottom (such as Old Town Dirigo or Current Design Kestrel or Vision, also fits all sea kayaks OR any vee bottom Kayaks such as all Wilderness Systems Tsunami OR any Pungo AND any Eddyline kayak -except tandems (which use the "Gull Wing XL") and Caribbeans, which use "Gull Wing C").

OUR "Gull Wing XL" kayak saddle has a 22" x 12" felt padded surface; shallow V shape [center is 2" lower than sides]. Gull wing XL saddles fit kayaks with a wider, flatter bottom: such as Old Town Vapor or Loon, Wilderness Systems Pamlico or Tarpon, Perception Prodigy, Current Design Solara, Native WaterCraft Marvel or Inuit and most tandem kayaks (except Old Town's Twin Heron, which use "Gull Wing C").

The Felt padded surface will act as "rollers" to load and unload your boat. Compare our 216 square inch (XL is 264 square inches) surface against competitors rollers and saddles of 8 to 48 square inches.

•Snap-Around Mount Fits ONLY Yakima™ round bars OR Thule™ rectangular bars.

Shown above: The Gull Wing Saddle with the Velcro Attached 12" SUV Roller onto the car's rear window plastic spoiler! Three 2" x 3 ½" Velcro strips install to the cars surface and attach to the velcro bottom on the roller. We are the alternative to tough loading and scratches on your car. Magnet bottom 12' roller also available for metal surfaces.



Click below for important safety information.


NOTE: Oak Orchard Canoe recommends the fail-safe security system of Yakima "Strap Caps" on the end of your Yakima crossbars. Yakima's "Strap Caps" fasten onto the ends your crossbars with a screwdriver and each have a tab hanging down so it is impossible for your strap to slide off of the bar.

Shown above: Chrysler MiniVan. Note the large distance from the factory rack crossbar and the installed Gull Wing to the rear of the vehicle. This distance is shortened considerably by adding the Oak Orchard 12" Fin Style SUV/Minivan Loader Roller in the 5th door roof crack. Now loading from the rear with the fin style roller onto the Gull Wing is easy!

Note: ALL cartopped canoes and kayaks should be secured front and back to car bumpers with ropes or bow/stern security straps (sold separately). These will prevent loss onto the road behind you and to remind one from entering the garage or low overheads.
