It’s a nice day with almost no wind and we decided to go for a paddle on the sea. Great idea ! The first thing you have to master is the “Kayak Launch” so that you can get out there and enjoy the fun times.
There’s all sorts of tips and tricks on internet media but a picture tells a thousand words (apparently) so here’s a few photos from Ian, Philip, Charles and Mike to show you how it’s done.
First make sure there are no small waves coming.
Remember a support stroke might be needed to stabilise your kayak.
Don’t worry if water splashes over you, it’s a wet sport.
When approaching a small wave lean forward to keep the kayak on an even keel.
Hope you have a nice day.
