Anna Knows Best

September 10, 2008

The kids are back in school. Summer's officially over this weekend. And stores are stocked for Halloween and Christmas (eek!).

Seasons may be changing but according to Anna Levesque, Graceful Edge's kayaker extraordinaire, it's always a great time to try kayaking.

Introducing Anna's 10 reasons why every woman should kayak:

1. Kayaking is about finesse, not strength.

2. Kayaking is fun for the young and old.

3. There's plenty of gear designed specifically for women.

4. There are women's only courses that are fun and supportive of your new adventure.

5. Your kids will enjoy playing in your new kayak at the lake.

6. Today's kayaks are lighter and easier to transport.

7. Kayaking can be very social and everyone is there to have fun and get outside.

8. Good instruction makes the learning process fun rather than scary.

9. It's a great way to meet people.

10. Kayaking is a great activity for men and women to do together because we can still each choose our own challenges on the river.
