Kayaking on Ice – April Fools!

2013 April 1st - Where's the flatwater?

Trying to find the unmelted parts of the river. You can see the river on the right of the bike path.

First day on the water since winter here in Ottawa! The water was ice-cold. Literally.
It’s just an amazing feeling to be back in the boat here on the one and only beautiful Ottawa River.
Since the whitewater course won’t be running till this summer, we have to make do with paddling flat water. We hope that the rest of the ice will met quickly to soon use the flat water gates.

Let's go paddle!

Let’s go paddle!

Other than doing paddling flat water intervals; Cam, Thea and I had some fun doing a few “ice drills” with coach Michal.

VERDICT: SLALOM PIVOTS ON ICE ARE TOTALLY AWESOME. Great fun!
