Tips before kayaking in Los Gigantes

The kayak is the perfect boat to feel the cliffs of Los Gigantes up close, without polluting the environment or disturbing the marine fauna. Besides, they are easy to handle and you are sure to master it the first time. Even so, here are some kayaking tips if you are a beginner.

Body posture

To avoid being tense or uncomfortable, bend your knees slightly and place them against the side of the kayak. This contact provides stability and enhances your strokes.

How to attach the kayak paddle?

You have to hold the paddle as if you were holding the handlebars of a bicycle, with your hands gripping the paddle downwards.

Remember that you don’t need to grip the paddle too tightly, because most paddles float if you drop them. You should have a relaxed “o” grip.

How to row?

Place the paddle blade completely in the water near your feet. Then pull back on the paddle and lift it out of the water. Remember that long strokes from your feet to the seat are best. Don’t forget to paddle on both sides or you will simply paddle in a circle.

To paddle backwards, you will only have to do the forward stroke in reverse. Put the paddle in the water at your seat and push it towards your feet, then take the paddle out of the water and switch sides doing the same motion.

How to stop a kayak?

Place your paddle in the water and hold it there, dragging it against the water. This will slow down and then stop any movement the kayak is making in the water.

How to turn a kayak?

If you want to turn LEFT, row only to the right. If you want to turn RIGHT, row left only. It’s that easy!
