Has anyone ever painted his or her yak? I thought that it would be cool to have a camo painted yak. I don’t intend on doing any hunting from it, but I just think that it would look cool, like a fishing commando. LOL! Pelican Castaways come in a Khaki Green color, so they would be easy to camo up.

Camo, if not for the use of hunting wouldn't be a great idea, remember you WANT boats to see you.

On the other hand I know some tarpons were made in a camo type color, I dont know if they still make them.

Yeah, a while back, someone got drunk (go figure) and painted blue tiger stripes on their green kayak. Don't remember who it was, but it's been done.

Malibu Kayaks has outfitted their Team OEX Pro staff with camouflage kayaks. They call it an arctic camouflage.

It probably isn't the safest color scheme for a kayak, but it does look very cool.

THAT IS SWEET! That is like I had in mind. I just want something that makes my yak look different and I love camo.

How about camo pattern in red, yellow and orange? Maybe red and yellow tiger stripes? I've thought about it a little, a little thought is about all I can manage!

I painted a 4-wheeler with Camo ... walked right into it and hurt my knee cause I didn't see it ...
I'm keepin' my kayak bright yellow with reflective tape and I'd put neon lights and disco balls on it to be seen in the lake I go to with the drunk Stereo blastin weekenders and water skiers that don;t know what "NO WAKE" means..

Are you sure that's a yak? The picture looks like a Uboat rigged for fishing! Not a bad idea I might add. Little bitty torpedoes in the water aimed at giant Redfish zigging! BOOM. Got another one. You could put four or five of them together and have a wolf-pack fish hunt.
