Paddling Tips and Tricks – Volume 1, Issue 1

I have decided to start offering a small news publication each month to our Region for Paddling Tips and Tricks. I pick up content from time to time from other sites and people about these subjects. I thought it would be fun to share with everyone who wants to read the news on our region. Please feel free to submit content to me for this publication (

For this monthand#39;s installment, I figured why not start with the basics! So here are the 4 basic fundamentals / rules of Kayaking:

1. Maintain Forward Posture (when youand#39;re forward, you can be more reactive to situations)

2. Look at Your Target (look where you want to go, not where you donand#39;t want to go)

3. Lead Ever Turn with Your Body (if you will turn your body first the boat will follow)

4. Keep Your Weight Over the Boat (by keeping the mass of your weight centered over the boat, you remain more stable; even when you are hard up on an edge)

Reference: Strokes andamp; Concepts w/ EJ DVD

Have a nice day and I hope to see you on the river!

Pray for rain!!
