Paddling Day at String Lake!

Despite the clearing smoke from distant forest fires, Teton Adaptive Sports Paddling Day at String Lake was one of the best events of the summer!

We had an excellent turn out of adaptive athletes, wonderful support from out volunteers, and stellar instruction and gear from Rendezvous River Sports! From the 6 person SUP, to hand made wooden kayaks, peddle boats to tandem and single person kayaks, there really was something for everyone.

Some people tried every kind of boat possible, while others found one that worked well for them and stuck with it. Her Josh gets geared up for a sit on top kayak. William finds that a SUP is a handy tool for taking a nap on the water. With warm summer days fleeting, it was the perfect opportunity to either get after it, or take it easy.

Of course it wouldn’t be a paddle day with out the party boat! Mycah and Tim hold down the party boat and invite others to join the fun!

The hot conversation of the day was the hand made wooden boats that Rich, Ian and Isabelle brought. Ian shows his excitement while riding in the beautiful craft.
