Canoe Padding Tips to Remember
When you’re in a canoe, especially for long periods of time, not just any stroke will do. Before you adventure out into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area it would be beneficial to brush up, practice and even train for your journey, depending on how long it is. Paddling a canoe the right way will allow for more efficiency, comfort and safety…the last thing you want to do is pull a muscle on the first day of your trip.
Get your Paddling Technique On Point
Whether you prefer the J stroke, Sweep or another paddling technique it is always important that you put your core muscles to work. Using your torso when paddling will give your arms and shoulders a break and add to the power of your stroke. By mastering the art of paddling a canoe you’ll be more likely to pace yourself, conserve energy and enjoy your time in the backwoods that much more.
Paddling Tips for the BWCA
Paddling the waterways of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area is a spectacular feeling all in itself but if it’s your first time, it may come with unexpected challenges. Bugs, rough terrain, rain, storms, fire starting and portaging are all things you will have to take into consideration. Give yourself a break while you’re there by not overpacking – our recommended personal gear list for BWCA and be sure to know how to keep your group safe, in case of an emergency – our BWCA Safety Guide.
