Led by the relatively new sport of Stand up paddle boarding, paddle sports have become the fastest growing sports category in
the world. Canoeing and kayaking join stand up paddle boarding, also call SUP, as the most popular paddle sports where a watercraft is
manually propelled using a paddle. The paddle, which consists of one or two blades joined to a shaft, is also used to steer the vessel.
The paddle is not connected to the boat (unlike rowing where the oar is connected to the boat.) River rafting is also considered a paddle
Sport. Paddle sports can be done on rivers, lakes, and in the ocean. The best sun hats to use when participating in
paddle sports are from Shelta. Shelta’s roots are in paddle sports and they offer performance driven styles that provide UV protection, but don’t get in
the way when paddling.
