In Case You Missed It: New Animated Canoe/Kayak & SUP Videos!
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. With the influx of novice paddlers on all types of waterways comes an increased risk of injuries and deaths. Canoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards were involved in nearly 20% of all boating casualties last year (U.S. Coast Guard 2013 Recreational Boating Statistics). The ACA, with funding from the U.S. Coast Guard, partnered with Anzovin Studio to create the following two animated videos with the goal of educating and empowering paddlers to take responsibility for their safety on the water.
Please share these videos with your family and friends to spread the message of safe boating and help us reduce the number of paddling-related fatalities.
The American Canoe Association (ACA) is a member-based 501(c)(3)non profit organization that promotes fun and responsible canoeing, kayaking, rafting and SUP. Founded in 1880, the ACA actively advocates recreational access and stewardship of America’s recreational water trails. For more information and to join, visit www.americancanoe.org.
