This week’s photo challenge is Summer Lovin’. And there’s nothing we love more than warm, comfy water. It invites us to try all sorts of new things. Like, climbing out of our cockpits (wobble, wobble) and paddling from other areas of our kayaks! Yonkers Paddling & Rowing Club members put our equilibrioception to the test on Saturday at Lake Sebago/ACA Camp, with help from our vision, proprioception, vestibular systems—and coaches Kam and Gwen.

very nice.I’m with you in sprit. About to cross the sound with Michelle and group
Excellent, Nick! Bon voyage 🙂 I hope the weather holds.
I like that paddling on the surfer board.
🙂 A few of us tried it, but so far, no converts. It’s a lot more difficult than it looks. Thanks for the visit!
Just got your message while watching the fun! Good stuff. Now I want to go to the lake and play too!
It was pretty hilarious… summer camp for grown-ups! No converts to SUP though. Can’t figure out where we’re supposed to put the snacks 🙂 Hope you can get out and play soon. What’s the water temp?
Lake water is fine. Went swimming a month ago and it felt around 65. Probably 70 now so I could get by without a dry suit. I want to work on the roll and edging / bracing which seem to be limiting my comfort level when at sea. Been working on lesson and for school and yard work the past few days. P
Ditto on the skills! I’m still trying to make friends with surf. Have fun.
