Wash Rider Resistance Strap

Get more results from your hard work with extra resistance.


The Wash Rider Resistance Strap is an essential training tool to get you closer to your paddling goals.

It lets you use resistance to train like a runner or cyclist uses hills – to build speed and power. 

They feel like 'you have a heap of lead on the rudder, or are constantly paddling over a wash'.

Ideal for working on technique, holding faster paddlers back with the training group, or to build power in your stroke – it's up to you how you use them. Kayak resistance training is a great way to build speed.

Made from hard-wearing and lightweight materials – it’s the groves in the balls create the resistance. To adjust the level of resistance, move the balls into or out of the water. You can also add extra balls to the rope for even more resistance. 




  • Can be used with most kayaks and skis
  • Quick and easy to attach and remove
  • Secure design – but they float so won't sink
  • Great for building technique and a strong stroke
  • Simple to adjust the resistance level

Check out the video below to see how to attach and use them.
