Sea kayaking is one of those things that you have to do at least once in your life. The good news is that you don't have to be a professional when you book guided kayak trips in Hout Bay, near Cape Town. Similar to cycling, kayaking is pretty easy to master and within a short period of time, you can look like a pro.
But before you go ahead and book your kayak excursion in Cape Town, there are some things you need to know.
Ensure to Dress Appropriately
Don't dress for the weather, instead dress for the water. It might be nice and sunny out but the waters in Cape Town are freezing. You'll be very glad you did in the event you should fall overboard (which isn't that unlikely). Always bring an extra pair of clothes.
Sit in the Right Position
To make paddling easier, make sure you sit in an upright position with your buttock and back at a 90-degree angle. You might be tempted to slouch against the backrest, but it will be counterproductive to do so.
Hold the Paddle Properly
The paddle should be held with both hands approximately shoulder distance apart. Paddle with your body and not your arms or you won't last very long. Move the blade toward the back of the kayak by twisting your body when paddling.
