Reading Trajectory In River Rapids

Understanding the basic trajectory of your kayak when you get into the water is an incredibly important part of enjoying your kayaking experience. Without that basic understanding you'll be nothing more than yet another random piece of flotsam being tossed around by the river. Trajectory itself is a vital term as well as a necessary sort of math in the sport. Your trajectory is a combination of the angle at which you're facing, the speed of the kayak, and the speed or direction of the current. Y need to know where you're going and by paying close attention to these factors you'll be ready for whatever the river might throw at you. The basics of angling and speed for maneuvering are instilled in kayakers at a very early stage. Most beginners know the basics. Getting out there into the midst of a heavy rapid can often cause you to forget or stop paying attention to the details you're trained to look for. You're going to have a trajectory no matter where you're headed in the river. What's most important is tha...

Beach Chairs Help make a Day at the Beach More Relaxing

I've noticed through the years that a day on the beach is fun and relaxing in direct relation to the toys and goodies you bring with you. The right chairs, umbrellas, and blankets or towels are some of the things that go in this category. Think how lame it would be to try to spend the day with your kids on a beach somewhere without something to sit down on. You would get tired, hot, and irritated in no time at all. And lunch would take on a whole new level of meaning wouldn't it? It's a no-brainer that the right chairs go a long way to making the day more comfortable and enjoyable.The first time we bought beach chairs we really skimped. They lasted all of one season and had to be tossed out. The webbing frayed and split. The colors faded. They just weren't worth keeping. Looking back I realize now that I should have brought the same attitude to purchasing those as I generally do to other things. That is, buy the very best you...
