Why paddle?

There are many reasons why paddling is a great sport and recreation.

Mental and physical fitness, relaxation, social connection, high-adrenaline thrills and Olympic pathways are just a few of them.

It’s also a great way to explore our beautiful Western Australian waterways with little impact on the natural environment.

We leave nothing but ripples.
