The American Canoe Association (ACA) wants to make sure you stay safe on your next paddling trip. In partnership with the US Coast Guard they have created some new infographics to remind beginners and pros alike of a few important safety tips . 

Remember, even though paddling is a great sport, it can also be dangerous.   

BUT, don’t be frightened off, just take the time to learn how to be safe: 

Take a class


Know your limits


Make a plan


Wear your life jacket


Practice defensive boating


Communicate with your paddling partners


And, before you go, remember your check list


 Check out the ACA website for the rest of the graphics or a wide variety of other educational resources! Feel free to print and share them to keep everyone safe.
