When most people think of paddling a kayak, they imagine a peaceful morning setting composed of cool misty waters, lush vegetation along the shoreline and the soothing sounds of running water while others may have visions of a memorable family outing on a warm sunny afternoon. What many people don’t realize, or rather may not consider, is that they can utilize a kayak for a daily exercise routine.
One of the most common question we receive is “what size kayak paddle do I need”. Having the right size paddle is one of the most important factors in having an enjoyable day out on the water.

Look at what paddling activities you’ll be doing and consider an option that will meet your specific needs.
Similar to kayak fishing, hunting from your kayak will allow you to get to remote spots on the water that you may not be able to reach by wading or by boat.

One after another, cold fronts keep knocking on our front doors. For many, the doors are already wide open but don’t let the cooler temperatures keep you from kayaking this Fall – but do it with care.

While most understand that their body size will ultimately determine the kayak that best suits their needs, there are many more features regarding size to look for that cater to the kind of paddling you’ll be doing.
As one of the fastest growing recreational kayak activities, kayak fishing has moved up the totem pole to attract all types of anglers from around the world.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we can’t overstate the importance of sun protection in the summer. The reality of the paddlesports world is that you’re adventuring where there’s little shade to shield you from the sun’s gaze and the unrelenting glare off of the water.
