is kayaking easy for beginners?
Kayaking is very easy. Only basic coordination, balance and fitness is required to paddle a kayak and it is commonly picked up by people of all ages within minutes. Plus with the help of a friendly Glenworth Valley guides to launch your craft, the whole experience is a breeze.
what to wear when kayaking
You’re going to get at least a little wet when kayaking. It’s best to embrace the water and get ready for a refreshing and cooling splash by wearing swimmers and water-suitable clothing. Light boardshorts and shirts or rash vests are perfect, and thongs, old joggers or crocs are useful when launching. It can also be helpful to cover up with longer sleeves or shorts if you’re hoping to minimize your sun exposure.
do kayaks flip easily?
With a wide base, buoyant shape and closed deck, kayaks are extremely stable. If they do manage to flip, it’s also extremely easily to roll them back over so the craft is once again upright and above water.
