A couple of days ago (Read when  post was made) we went kayaking on a school field trip for gym! We went to the scarsdale pool to paddle.  We went on standup paddleboards, freestyle boats, and even more boats! Coach SW taught us how to do a wet exit. A wet exit is when you put your nose to your knees and rock the kayak back and forth until it rolls over. Then you swim to land and then you drain the kayak.  On freestyle boats you can do a wet exit much easier. On a standup paddle you stand and paddle.

<—– Recreational kayak

A recreatioal kayak is a kayak where you can’t do a wet exit.
