In America the term refers exclusively  to using one or more single blades or paddles to propel a canoe. There are sub-varieties of canoeing, such as touring  and whitewater canoeing, and outrigger canoeing. Traveling in a whitewater raft can involve using either paddles, or a  pair of oars, or both. Outrigger canoe racing is a team paddling sport which uses the outrigger canoe.  Shelta has its roots in paddle sports! Our founder, an avid paddler needed a sun hat for UV protection.  After not finding  one that worked to his satisfaction he invented one.  Shelta was born from necessity. Being exposed to harmful UV rays  while participating in outdoor sports can increase the odds of getting skin cancer and should to be addressed by wearing  UV protective clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses and a sun hat.  A Shelta is a different kind of sun hat. The brim doesn't flop  in your face, the fabric is UPF 50+ rated and DWR coated, it floats, and each style has unique and innovative features.   We wanted sun hats could be worn in all weather conditions and when participating in active sports or activities.  Performance driven UV protection!  Different brim widths and crown styles were designed with different outdoor sports  and adventures in mind.  The brim doesn’t flop in your face when it gets wet or windy and the cord system gives you  options besides just tightening it around your chin. Shelta has multiple styles designed to be the best sun hat for your  canoe and outrigger canoe needs.  If you want even more sun protection, use the Shelta neck shield, face gaiter and Sun glove.   Sun protection that won’t wear off!  Shelta has become the best sun hat ever made for outdoor athletes and adventurers.  Athlete tested. Adventure approved. Get Shelta
