When paddle boarding, you should stand in the middle of the board. The nose end (front) should not be sticking out of the water and the tail should not be digging into the water.

Can you use a paddle board in a river?


Yes. Paddle boats can be sued on any body of water as long as it is safe to do so. Always wear a personal floating device when paddle boating for added safety.

Can I remove my fins on my paddle board?


The fins can be easily removed to transporting the paddle board, however they are used for navigation of the water so you should not try to paddle board without the fins attached.

Do I need to wax the top of the paddleboard?


Most paddle boards are made with traction pads attached to the top of the board, these should never be waxed. Boards that do not have the traction pads should be lightly covered with a base wax.

What does the paddle have an angle?


The elbow in a paddle provides a more powerful, effective stroke. When you're paddling, the elbow causes the paddle blade to align straight up and down as it comes alongside the paddleboard.

How should I choose the size of my paddle board?


Paddle boards come in three sizes 10ft, 11ft and 12ft, the size is determined by the weight of the person and how many paddles there will be as well as how far the paddler wants to glide between paddles. Normally a person weighing less than 160lbs will choose the 10ft board and someone weighing over 160lbs would take the 11ft. If the paddler is heaver let's say 300lbs or they want to have more than one paddler they would take the 12ft board.

Which type of board should I get if I am just starting surfing?


I recommend renting instead of buying if you are just starting out. Surfboards can be expensive and you want to make sure that you are into the sport before you invest all that money. As a beginner, you should use a long board. This is because they are very buoyant, allow for very easy paddling and wave catching and they are generally easier to maneuver on the water. The only issue is that they are tough to maneuver on land because they are a full eight and a half feet long. The best boards for beginners are wide, thick and light.

Long of the canoe


When you are sitting in the boat and the blade is totally immersed, the top grip should be about shoulder high for general and touring use. For white water and more specialized paddling, a longer paddle, especially for the stern paddler, provides more reach and leverage for maneuvering the boat.

Flat blade stuck on KA stand mixer


Using one of the bowls, filled it with hot water up to the shaft and where the paddle is hooked up. Using a cotton cloth, wrap it around the paddle and shaft, let it soak for 30 to 40 min. After 30 min, twist the paddle back and forth to loosen up whatever got stuck inside the shaft and paddle. Put a little of mineral oil so that the paddle will be easily remove and it will just slide out from the shaft.
