Wilko's Paddling Ideas

On these pages I have collected some of the tips and ideas that I have run across over the years. Here you can read about my own thoughts about fear, paddling skill, trust, and what makes paddling to be such a passion for me. I also put some of my own experiences with trying to assemble my own set of paddling gear, what I look for when buying new gear, why I chose certain boats, what I did to go on more paddling trips and how I found more paddling buddies.

Hopefully this is of some help for you.
