How To Prepare?
Kayaking requires you to have a good aerobic base along with strength and flexibility.
It's a good work of legs and arms so do stretch both before you start!
When you’re out kayaking, your legs are just as important as the rest of your body. In order to be agile and quick on your feet, it’s essential to keep them stretched and toned.
Drink plenty of water: Kayaking can be dehydrating, so it’s important to drink lots of water.
Eat healthy snacks: Bring along some healthy snacks like fruits and nuts to keep your energy up.
Take breaks: If you’re feeling tired, take a break. It’s better to paddle for a shorter time at a leisurely pace than to push yourself too hard and end up exhausted.
Wear sunscreen: The sun can be harmful, even when it’s not that hot out. Make sure to wear sunscreen to protect your skin.
Dress appropriately: Kayaking can be cold, even in the summer. Make sure to dress in layers so you can adjust to the temperature.
