Paddle NL - Disciplines

Paddle Boarding

Whether you go to a river, lake or the ocean, I’m sure you’ve seen people doing it.

From yoga enthusiasts practicing poses in the water, to surfers, fitness people, or simply individuals who like to paddle and explore.

So, how do you get into Paddle Boarding?

Kayaking

The rugged coastlines, lakes and ponds of Newfoundland and Labrador are the backdrop for awe inspiring paddles. Rolling hills, towering cliffs, canyons, caves and simple rocks create vistas that whisper and call to the child inside you. Providing a return to the joy and purity of discovering what’s around the next corner, what treasure and reward awaits you.

Kayaking is our chance to rekindle the magic of youthful discovery, of being touched deeply by the sights and sounds of these majestic shores.

Canoeing

Canoeing is a recreational activity or sport that involves paddling a canoe on a river, lake, pond, or ocean. It can be done individually (solo canoeing) or in tandem (one person in the bow and one in the stern). The canoe typically requires a paddle to propel and steer.

Canoeing can be enjoyed for various purposes, including leisurely exploration of nature, white-water adventures, wilderness camping trips, and competitive racing events. Canoeing has many physical and mental benefits, as well as its ability to connect individuals with nature and promote water safety skills.

Paddle NL - So much to sea
