A solid boat based on the successful Helios 380, the slightly longer Sunny can be paddled as a single or double, with enough space for a kid or dog. Somewhat more stable than the Helios, the open cockpit Sunny is a true recreational boat designed for comfort and easy maneuvering. The Sunny packs compactly in its own drybag/backpack and can be set up in a matter of minutes. Hand-crafted with a heavy duty rubber coated 1,200-denier Nitrylon™, the Sunny will deliver years of paddling fun for a family of adventurers. The Sunny comes with a removable tracking fin. The Sunny can easily be changed into a balanced single kayak for solo paddlers. Because the boat is double-ended, the forward seat can be turned around and the tracking fin swapped to the other end to allow a solo paddler to sit in the middle of the Sunny.Please view additional photos and related products below.

What is Nitrylon™ fabric, and is it better than PVC?
Nitrylon™ is a lamination of nitrile synthetic rubber and natural rubber over a 1,200-denier, low stretch polyester fabric. Nitrylon™ is very puncture and abrasion resistant. It is considerably stronger, easier to patch, performs better in cold weather, and is much more abrasion resistant than PVC. It also does not have the environmental problems associated with the manufacture and ultimate disposal of PVC products.
Inflating Innova Kayaks (Video)
When I first got my Innova boat the valves worked somewhat differently than what I had expected. To inflate, you push to pop-out. And to deflate, you push to pop-in. Again, to inflate, you push to pop-out and to deflate you push to pop-in.
Sometimes you can add a little twist in there if that’s helpful for you or if your valve’s a little stuck. So again, I’m going to push to pop-out. I’m going to inflate. Once it’s popped-out, the valve is sealed and it has the ability to hold all the air that I put into it.
Ok, now I can push and you can hear the air coming out of it. So some people, or all people have different types of pops. So one of the things that we have here that comes with your boat is a fitting that can screw right into place and it fits alternative pump fittings. So you will keep your hold on to that, seal it up in a pocket somewhere.
The other important thing is your boat should always be filled to 3 psi. That’s pounds per square inch. Your tires in your car would take about 30 psi by comparison. So you won’t be using the same pump you use for the bicycle or your car. But there’s a good way to get a sense of what your filling. And you get a pump, we sell these on our website, you just click it in when your valve is out and pop it out, and right then it should show you the psi rating. Ok, happy kayaking.
