I’m glad I got into kayaking before I knew it was so dangerous.
Even a small lake ten feet leaves you unable to stand. So you better have a plan. Many don’t and it doesn’t work out well.
Actually a pretty decent article. Hard to disagree with any of it.
An excerpt from the article:
Although all three men were wearing life jackets, wetsuits and helmets, they had to be saved by the Coast Guard. Unfortunately, Fajman’s high-quality flotation device came off in the water.
How does a PFD come off in the water if it’s properly fitted?
Leave it unfastened? Wrong size? Maybe not so high quality after all? He wasnt wearing it and his friends lied so he wouldn’t look so bad?
Wife buttoned it up?
