Sometimes it can be hard to stay motivated to get the paddling gear on and get out the front door in Winter. Your bed is warm and extra cozy at this time of year, and the sun seems to take forever to come up and then disappears all to quickly. Here on the South Coast however you just need to remind yourself of the paradise that awaits once you push off the beach and dip your blades in the water.... soooo I thought I would put my TOP FOUR tips out there to keep you active and inspired to stay on the water this Winter Season.
No. 1 at the top of my list of motivators....... The Ocean comes alive in June, July and August and we see a bigger variety of wildlife on our tours at this time of year. The light, colours and air is crisper and cleaner and the water just seems to be that little bit clearer (if that is actually possible in Jervis Bay) .... All the right ingredients to make for stunning photographs to capture your adventures. http://www.seakayakjervisbay.com.au/Guided_Kayaking_Tours_on_The_NSW_South_Coast
No. 2 Plan a paddling Holiday away ..... By including a Paddling Trip to one of our "Must Do" Travel destinations it will keep you motivated to get out and keep fit whilst keeping your skills sharp so you are prepared and ready to make the most of your well earned Adventure escape. http://www.seakayakjervisbay.com.au/Sea_Kayaking_Tasmanias_Wild_South_West_2015_copy
No. 3 Get the right Gear! ... Clothing will make all the difference to you enjoying your day out or being miserable because you are too cold. Even though the water temperature in and around Jervis Bay is still a toasty 17 degrees the wind chill factor is a real safety issue. Having a good set of Thermal Paddling Wear (Tops and Bottoms), a Wind Proof Jacket, Wet Suit Booties, gloves and even paddling in a Beanie and buff around your neck as I do early in the morning or later in the afternoon will see you easily able to enjoy your paddling experience with a big smile and a warm core temp so you don't miss any of the action.
No. 4 Have an inspired Paddling Buddy...... Just like making a time to meet your friend at the Gym, at Yoga class, or at your local surf break to make sure you stay motivated to get there, having paddling buddies makes all the difference. When you know people are going paddling and the weather is going to be brilliant and you just KNOW they are going to see something awesome and not shut up about it, this is a real motivator to make sure you don't suffer from FOMA (Fear of Missing Adventures).
