Give Your Boat a Lift with the Shore Tee by FootStake

Published: Monday, July 24, 2017

When you live for weekends on the water, your kayak or canoe is your prized possession. It’s more than a piece of gear — it’s your ticket to beautiful views, restorative trips, and the opportunity to unplug and reconnect.

That’s why it’s so important to have a reliable storage system that keeps your boat safe, clean, and dry. While there are a lot of products on the market, the best one will be easy to use, lightweight, portable, and affordable, while still providing all the benefits you expect from a quality storage system.

If this combination sounds impossible, we’ve got good news. The Shore Tee by FootStake is now available, and it’s the kayak and canoe storage system you’ve been searching for.

A Simple Solution
The FootStake team was born and bred in Michigan, also known as “The Great Lakes State.” With over 11,000 inland lakes and 3,228 miles of contiguous coastline along, the team is never more than six miles from a body of water.

“We’ve always enjoyed being on the water,” Tim Grant, FootStake Program Director explained, “but we didn’t like how much space our gear took up.” After struggling with safe and secure storage for years, Tim and the team decided to tackle the problem head on.

“When it came to designing this innovative and lightweight storage system, we were privileged to use Lake Michigan as our laboratory,” he says. This meant putting in a lot of time on the water, testing each iteration until they settled on the perfect prototype — not that anyone on the team complained. In the end, their hard work paid off. The Shore Tee is a simple, portable, and affordable storage system that can be used at home or on the go. The best part? It only requires one simple tool to operate: your foot.

How it Works
To use the Shore Tee by FootStake, simply place the stake on the ground, pointy side down. The shovel-shape is patented and makes it easy to push the Shore Tee into soft earth or sand with your foot. Once the first Shore Tee is secure, repeat the process with the second stake—they come in pairs. Finally, flip your kayak, canoe, or paddleboard on top and you’re done. It’s that easy.
