Paddling Through Covid

Paddling Through Covid

2020 has been a challenging year.

Masks have become the new normal.

Politics and protests fill the airways.

Stress and uncertainty consume our thoughts.

As challenging as it’s been, the one thing we all have in common is kayaking.

Kayaking allows us to escape and forget.

It brings clarity to our minds and heals our souls.

The peacefulness of paddling helps us digest the current circumstances and make sense of it all.

Do you feel the same way?

Has kayaking helped you through the COVID era?

Has it helped you cope with the loss of a loved one?

Has it helped you deal with a closed business or unemployment?

Has it helped you manage an illness or your mental health?

If any of these ring true to you, we would love to hear and share your story.

During the next few weeks we’ll be featuring our “Paddling Through Covid” series where we share stories of our Facebook group members and fellow kayakers who have paddled their way through these difficult times.

We’ll be sharing their stories on our website and posting on our social media channels for all to see.

It’s a great way to share your experiences and bring some peace and joy to others who might find themselves in similar situations.

If you’d like to participate, please email us at

We look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Stay safe and paddle on.

If there’s one part of kayaking that’s not fun, it’s when your kayak flips over.

There's many ways your kayak can flip, but the most common ones are big waves, strong currents and excessive weight.

Although kayaks are designed for maximum stability no matter the conditions, accidents happen and knowing what to do can help you avoid an unpleasant experience
