Collection: Paddlesports - Safety

Paddlesport safety is important. Flotation bags minimize the amount of water that collects in canoes and kayaks, preventing them from sinking if capsized.  Personal Flotation Devices (PFD) are essential paddling safety items. They provide buoyancy to keep your head above water if you capsize.  Tow lines assist paddlers who are tired or injured. One end is attaches to either the cockpit coaming (rim) or the waist of the towing paddler, and the other is clipped to the boat being towed. Some tow lines are also equipped with bags that allow them to be thrown to a capsized paddle.
