This summer while you’re enjoying the perfect weather for paddlesports, make sure to employ our safety essentials to keep yourself and other safe on the water. These tips are aimed at new entrants to our sport, to ensure every trip out on the water is a safe one. Paddlesports are a great form of exercise to try out during the summer but the water needs our respect, taking these simple steps will keep you safer on the water, and prepare you for any issues which may arise.

We are releasing a series of helpful videos of easy safety tips for you to use or share with anyone else hoping to try out paddlesports. You can find all the videos to share on the Canoeing Ireland Instagram, or on the Canoeing Ireland YouTube.
