Kayaking experience...

Sunday, August 07, 2005

Now i'm gotta say abt my 2 lessons of kayaking..first of all we learnt the parts of the paddle and kayak....the front of the kayak is....sori i forgot wat is it call....the back is called the stern and place the we sit is called the cockpit...we oso learnt how to embark and disembark the kayak and some skills....such as pladding forward and backward..oso we did the capsized drill...that was scary....at first i do not dare to capsized so when i was ask to capsized, i tried but failed... in the second lesson dey told us to capsized again..dis time i did it...the process of capsizing is....step 1:lok out for danger..second put the paddle beside the kayak..left or right oso can..next bent down den tap the bottom of the kayak 3 times and twist the kayak and capsized...and mus capsized frm the side where the paddle is placed....after tt...tap the bottom of the kayak 3 times and cum out frm the side the paddle is placed...tak the paddle and shout for help...actually if we accidently capsized while paddling..no need to tap the bottom of the kayak 3 times...the reason of tapping 3 times is to show tt we have confidence....

In the second session, we leant how to rescue the person who had capsized and how to move side ways..dey oso called us to do the capsized drill one by one...very scary..lol...the best part is the sea....went to the sea too..its so fun to paddle in the sea and we use double sitter kayaks...in the pool we used single...the wave in the sea is pushing us away too..wow...so cool..so fun....hippy...
