Now that you have improved balance, developed some solid paddling habits, and have a basic understanding of how to apply bracing skills, it’s time to focus on rescues and environmental awareness. These are both important to master if you plan to paddle on large bodies of water such as Lake Red Rock, Rathbun, Saylorville or anywhere you expect to paddle more than a quarter mile away from the shore. Learn how to identify hazards, reduce risks, and rescue yourself or others if things go wrong. Discover the T-Rescue and the solo paddle float rescue. Understand how to apply these techniques to unique situations and difficult conditions. In addition, you’ll be introduced to a few new ways of thinking about your paddling.
