Paddling Tip of the Week
Foot protection is particularly important when entering or exiting the water. Popular launch and exit locations for kayaking or canoeing are often risky to traverse barefoot – be on the lookout for rusty fishing tackle, broken glass and sharp tin cans, in addition to natural risks like oysters shells or barnacle-encrusted rocks. Wearing water shoes gives you extra piece of mind entering and exiting your kayak and also improves grip on slippery surfaces. The weekly paddling tip is provided by the Ocean Tribe Paddling Club, which is affiliated with the Sanibel Sea School. For more information, visit oceantribepaddlers.org.
