Recreational paddling truly provides a relaxing experience on calm streams and lakes.


Recreational paddling ranges from short outings on a nearby lake or playing in rapids or kayak surfing at a beach, to demanding self-sufficient trips through remote areas. Outings can often combine other interests such as nature study, lightweight camping, adventure and fishing.


Recreational kayaks and canoes are relatively stable and suited to many kinds of conditions. This provides great flexibility for general use and also a great starting point for novice paddlers.
