The Quickest, Easiest Way Out
Sometimes you just have to exit your kayak after a capsize and when your spray skirt has you nicely held in you need to know the quickest way out.
Check out this nice (and quick!) simple step by step process to getting out your kayak when wearing a spray skirt.
It is described in the video as ‘just like pulling off big pair of plastic pants’ – you keep that in mind and you should be fine!
A few basics are :- to make sure the grab loop for your spray skirt is in front of you for easy access, quickly take a breath of air before you go under and keep your head as near to the kayak as possible as you capsize.
We all know a capsize happens in seconds and sometimes you are under before you know it, just keep these steps in mind and remember – practice makes perfect!
