New safety videos targets new paddlers

video1_life jacketsThe nonprofit Water Sports Foundation has released a series of highly specialized paddlesports safety videos targeting new paddlers, an area of concern for the U.S. Coast Guard.

In 2015, the Water Sports Foundation, a recipient of U.S. Coast Guard nonprofit organization grant funding, directed its outreach project’s focus to include more effort toward making paddlesports safer. As part of these efforts, WSF worked with paddlesports boats manufacturers, the U.S. Coast Guard, the American Canoe Association, and Canoe & Kayak magazine to develop and produce a series of eight videos, each focusing on a specific safety concern.

A new video is being released each week throughout summer 2016; they can be viewed at
