The Always Shady Umbrella is designed for attaching to a kayak frame and staying in the shade while you're out in the sunny river flats. We designed it out of a personal need for shade during a kayak fishing trip in sunny Florida. The universal ball joint is made for attaching to the rim of your kayak and then you screw the umbrella arm on and you're good to go! It's as easy as that. There are no special tools, extra add-ons, or unnecessary weight needed to attach the Always Shady Umbrella to your kayak. Just grab a screw driver, the Umbrella kit, and your kayak!

The Always Shady Umbrella is so easy to use that you can adjust and realign it while you're out on your kayak. If you're kayak fishing and suddenly the sun starts creeping around the edge of our 68" shade circumference all you'll need to do is loosen the lever and readjust the umbrella shade to keep the sun blocked. It's so quick and easy it doesn't take away from your fishing time. So you can spend your day in your kayak and never get sunburned while out on the flats.
