Are You Making These Paddling Mistakes?

Whether kayaking on a lake, rafting down a river, stand up paddleboarding in the ocean, or canoeing down a stream, millions of Americans participate in paddlesports each year. 

Did you know that canoes, kayaks, and stand up paddleboards were involved in 20% of all boating casualties last year? We want to bring that number down to zero!

If you haven't seen our new animated videos, check them out. One is directed at stand up paddleboarders, and the other is for kayakers/canoeists

The videos offer a fun way to educate yourself about safe paddling practices (and hopefully you'll get a good laugh in the process). If you have feedback, we'd love to hear it. Please email clloyd@americancanoe.org, or comment on YouTube. Thanks!

Padde safe, paddle often.
