Would there be a safe way to store a kayak outside? We don't have a garage and there is no way I could store it in the house. Any ideas for storing outside?

Try to store up off the ground preferably on it's side in the shade and cover with a tarp.
Just one more cast!

What Jimbo said.

Any position well supported and well covered from sunlight and rain. they will stain from standing water with leaves as well as potentially distort in shape with weight and/or freezing.

I have bought several yaks that have been badly stored outside, unprotected, for years, Even they survive, just not as pretty at first. Clorox cleanup and 3M will make anything pretty again.

What Jimbo and Carver said.

You especially have to watch out for the UV rays as they can cause structural damage to your yak. Even when the yak is beached, try to keep it out of the sun.

Saw horses and a tarp at a minimum.

shaded, covered, and evenly supported and they should be fine
