There’s something adventurous and exotic about planning kayak, packraft, canoe or SUP trips in faraway places. Somehow we imagine a road trip or overseas destination will be better.
But paddling locally can be just as fun…and in our current situation, the best choice!
We’re all longing to get out of the house and on the water in a kayak, packraft or SUP board. Not just because of two months+ of quarantine, but because the weather’s beautiful and summer is upon us! How do we do that in a safe, socially-distanced way?
Since the beginning, packrafting has appealed to adventurous folk who aren’t afraid to put in a little effort to get off the beaten path. Not quite an inflatable canoe yet not quite a kayak, packrafts are inflatable rafts that resemble dinghies but are capable of whitewater and extreme fun.
