It's all the rage in the South West!
Everywhere you go around the coast of South Hams (and some of the rivers too) there seems to be someone who likes to paddle, but prefers not to sit down. I tried briefly, and it’s not as easy as they make it appear, but it certainly looks like a serene way to travel.
I was down at Warfleet creek and saw this group concentrating hard on their posture. I believe they were from Sea Kayak Devon. Warfleet creek is, of course, a fantastic place to learn any watersports when you want a sheltered, shallow spot to practice your balance, your eskimo roll or your gybes.
