new boats and the right clothing for paddling

Here's a new kayak coming out of the club and going on the water for the first time, it`s a Tahe Marine mini reval,

The proud owner getting used to her new boat.I guess it takes a while before you feel comfortable in anything new, you need to get the feel of the boat, to let your body adapt to the shape, feel the rocking and the initial instability especially if you have been paddling something much more solid and stable up to now. It takes time but after a while you get into your boat and it feels like coming home, you don`t even have to think about it anymore, just be patient and you will love your boat, if its a good one that is.

And then you need the right accessories of course, just ask our most respected coach.
