    Shit vid

  5. Em Jay on March 11, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Bunch of folks here complaining about how this is complicated and tendinitis is a major injury…blah…blah, this is NOT a Senior Citizen kayaking course. God, have some confidence, listen to these experienced ppl, and go have fun.

    Paddle TV always makes high quality instructional videos.

  7. Brad Morrison on March 11, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Okay you don’t need to turn your body backwards to paddle. That’s stupid.

  8. videoviewer00001 on March 11, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    I’m 9 years old and I’m learning to roll the kayak, could u do an easy tutorial on kayak rolling, please?

  9. euashuwheuweu on March 11, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    You are stupid!

  10. Rob Kenworthy on March 11, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    A bunch of A Hole comment. Is this on the Hudson River?

  11. j gil on March 11, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    looks weird and unnatural. i’ve kayaked 15 miles at a time no rest, no injuries and it is not like that. and why is the water so calm? that’s not normal conditions.

  12. Dylan Mounsey on March 11, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Old town is so wack lol they overpriced as hell and not superior in anyway lol just a big branding money grab

  13. Bob Marske on March 11, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    Rule #1 wear a stinking PFD. Rule #2, Check Rule #2. Rule #3, review rules 1 and 2

  14. Tranquility on March 11, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    Also, so far as getting in or out, if there is something to hold onto on the dock itself, then grab onto it. In this vid, there was a part of the deck that she could have grabbed onto but didn’t. Although, not all decks have this convenience

  15. Alyse Mary on March 11, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    This video plus the comments got me dying lmao

  16. Greener Expeditions on March 11, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Don’t drown, mkay. Drowning is bad.

  17. nothing is Out on March 11, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Do these tips apply to medicinal kayaking as well?

  18. Kelly Pro on March 11, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    recreation kayaking is no laughing matter, its seriously serious

  19. Lucas Cruz on March 11, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Left, right, left, right, TA DA it’s not that damn hard😂

  20. Oh My Adderflight on March 11, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    why is this so old
    come on people stay updated
    its 2017 not the 1900’s
    jeez

  21. Megan Joseph on March 11, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Start simple, but do begin! Taking the first step is the biggest step. Buy or rent a kayak, start on very calm water, always wear a life jacket, have fun! -Megan from kayakingkids.com.

  22. Joey Miles on March 11, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    This is gay

  23. P Landa on March 11, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    I’m a child how am I going to do that ?

  24. Jules C on March 11, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    #1 rule – it’s separation not seperation. Unless it’s an American nuance.

  25. Erin Wilson on March 11, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    These rules are way too much for recreational kayaking for beginners. Simple. Don’t lean too far. Use full strokes. Sit up straight. All this stuff should be learnt much later, when confidence has grown. But that’s just my humble opinion…

  26. Desmond Barnes on March 11, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    good informative video, thanks

  27. Robert Heidersbach on March 11, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Great video. These points are defiantly good for beginners to know!

  28. Josh H on March 11, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Damn yoga moves on a kayak. No thanks

  29. Elijah Addey on March 11, 2021 at 11:55 pm

  30. The Cutest Cuck on March 11, 2021 at 11:57 pm

  31. Jon Goldberg on March 11, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    Too much nasal

  34. Nate The Great on March 12, 2021 at 12:03 am

    So loose lips can sink ships, but loose hips keeps kayaks afloat? Seems legit..

  35. nonh8nsk8r on March 12, 2021 at 12:05 am

    "Kayaking isn’t dangerous."
    Um. Water. Yeah, that stuff you’re floating on that can sometimes move really fast unexpectedly and suddenly fall off a cliff. That’s often called a waterfall. Not dangerous at all.

  36. Tamas Petki on March 12, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Wow! I’ve just booked a trip because of this video.
    I can’t wait to go!! 🙂 Thanks much for making this video.

    This is the exact trip we booked: https://www.trekhunt.com/en/trek/socarider_whitewaterkayaking – Does anyone has any experience if kayaking is dangerous with a 10 year old kid?

  37. ant cri on March 12, 2021 at 12:07 am

    PaddleTV You are over complicating things. Beginners should find some nonmoving or very slow moving water and just get out there and do it, have fun, get some confidence and worry about technicalities later.

  38. Charles Tillman on March 12, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Like hell naw lol. Im going though but if I fall in Ima be pissed off lmbo.

    So what you’re saying is loose hips don’t sink ships?

  45. Dick Tugnuts on March 12, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Maintain your box!

  47. Tranquility on March 12, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Dude I saw the vid where your dry bag was taken by the bear, don’t put your wallet in your dry bag anymore, bad idea. Better to lose your lunch rather than your wallet.

  48. Conrad Smith on March 12, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Loose hips not sink ships

  49. josephralls on March 12, 2021 at 12:20 am

    These should be rules 2,3 and 4. Rule 1 should be DONT pass between anglers and the shore.. They’re casting that way.. GO the hell around them!!! Christ….
