When winter rolls around, I find myself lusting for those summer days where you could just slip into a bathing suit, slap on some sunscreen and a hat and be good to go for a day of paddling. Colder weather calls for much more preparation when you’re dressing to keep warm on the water.
Paddling in Cold Weather It may not feel like it everywhere now, but September marks the end of summer and, eventually, the coming of cooler fall weather. This time last year, our team was talking about kayak storage options to help people get ready for the cold winter months.
Fall brings cooler weather and a hint of even colder temperatures that are just around the corner but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s time to put your kayaks and canoes away. With a bit of preparation and apparel suited for almost any type of environmental condition, you’ll be paddling well into the winter, especially for those in the more temperate regions.
If It’s Not Frozen, Paddle It! Can’t wait until spring to begin paddling again?
