“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.”

-Henry David Thoreau, Walden
A trip down to the coast of North Carolina means sunshine and wind and I needed a way to have shade on the shore.

I wanted to use my kayak as the base, tent poles for the support, and an emergency blanket as the Shibumi sun shade. We were all very pleased with how it turned out!

About the Ascend 128T Kayak

Equipped with Yak-Power®, the Ascend® 128T Sit-on-Top Kayak takes the hybrid fishing platform design to a whole new level. This unique fishing kayak combines stand-up paddleboard characteristics with a sit-on-top kayak fishing platform to provide excellent stability whether you're standing, fishing, or paddling. The Ascend 128T Sit-on-Top Kayak adds to its innovative design with open-deck access and customization options unlike any other stand-up kayak on the market.

Recessed bow and stern open storage areas with flush-mounted bungees provide endless accessorizing options, while the Yak-Power system brings a wiring harness, master controller, and 3 strategically placed power plugs. A removable rod tip protector/paddle stowage with threaded insert accepts additional accessories, and the 4 flush-mounted rod holders with rod leash eyelets (leash not included) let you create a personalized fishing setup. A deluxe seating system allows all-day comfort with a removable design to go from on-water to onshore in seconds.

The flat casting deck with non-skid foam mat and pull-up assist strap, midship and aft watertight storage, port and starboard accessory-mounting rails, and 8 scupper drains with plugs round out this adventurous Ascend kayak to bring the best all-around on-water experience Ascend has offered to date.
