6ESSENTIAL SEA KAYAKING TIPS SOYOU ARE GETTING PUMPED AND READY FOR ASEA KAYAKING ADVENTURE! Here are some tips that will help you get ready for your expedition whether you are a novice or have paddled a few times before: GET COMFORTABLE IN THE WATER. THIS IS AN ESSENTIAL PIECE OF ADVICE To do Wet Exit successfully you need to have some composure upside down underwater. To do more advanced skills & rescues, like the fabled Eskimo roll, you must be able to be peaceful & thoughtful while water is rushing up your nose. WORK THOSE ABS! HAVING A STRONG CORE PREVENTS INJURY. No matter your chosen sport, having strong abdominal muscles is essential. FIND GEAR THAT FITS YOU WELL, Whether you are buying gear for yourself or renting some from an outfitter or a school, make sure you take the time to size it well. MAKE YOUR BOAT FIT YOU WELL, Your boat should be snug- you should not be able to put your legs out straight, & your thighs & hips should be making contact with the boat. It can be uncomfortable, especially when compared to a sit-on-top kayak, BE PREPARED TO BE METICULOUS ABOUT CARING FOR YOUR GEAR. Your gear is your lifeline, even if your expedition is short & the gear is borrowed. Be prepared to be meticulous about caring for yourself. This is a reiteration of some of the previous tips, but it is important. PUSH YOURSELF OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE.
