How do I know which length suits me best? If you hold the paddle straight up and down on the floor next to you the blade on the floor should be touching the ground and the top blade should be about six inches above your head from the bottom of the top blade.
Based on the sheer volume of pictures I am seeing with kids and their new and loaded backpacks on Facebook, it seems that school is back in session. Some may see it as the end of summer but the heat is still on for most of the country and before we begin to plan out our cooler weather outdoor adventures, we should all take advantage of what’s left and enjoy the warmer temperatures to the fullest extent.
Summer marks a time when your water bottle never seems to be quite as full as you’d like and you start to notice that every time you go out to paddle or camp you end up swimming or (gasp) not doing anything at all. While this summer in particular has already brought record breaking temperatures throughout many parts of the nation there is hope for those that want to continue playing outdoors.
