Accidents will happen even in the most planned situations. We can never be too careful. Accidents do happen, but it is how we respond and the choices we make leading up to, during, and after an accident that can make all the difference in the world. As summer approaches and more people are venturing out on the water, this is a good reminder of what can happen and how we should respond.
PADDLING ACCIDENTS EPISODE 1 – LAGUNA BEACH, CA
By SUP Magazine
Accidents happen. And they can happen unexpectedly to even the most seasoned paddlers, and on any type of water. Sometimes it's better to not look away, but rather, to take a second, closer look at what exactly went wrong. By examining the full situation, and determining the critical decisions involved (and their consequences), we can learn to make the choices that matter most. With that hope of helping paddlers make that next safe choice, we've been working in partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard to present our new four-part Paddling Accidents video series. In each episode, we cast the spotlight on a real paddler recounting an everyday experience on the water gone awry that resulted in rescue. Survivors and witnesses alike relive difficult stories in order to share an important lesson.
