Collection: Paddlesports - Compasses

The compass is used for navigation, location and direction. People use it to find their way, whether it is on a hiking trail or on a trip to a new location on the water. It is an instrument composed of a suspended magnetic pointer that is attracted to the polarity of the North Pole. A precisely measured scale is used to mark the directions, relative to the north. Through a slight left or right turn, a compass will accurately point to the North Pole and identify the angles of the other cardinal directions. Never get lost on the water again always find your way using a compass  like the Ritchie XP-99w Kayaker compass. This compass will mount right to your kayak or paddle board.
