Kayaking with a Disability

via YouTube
Shows the modifications and adaptions made by one person with quadriplegia so he could continue to participate in one of the activities he loved prior to his injury. It was a process of frustration, failure, trial and error and took over six years


  1. Wow, a lot of effort into this disability sports blog. Thanks a lot. The links alone are great. Great name as well. Thanks.

    They have an official kayaking program here but it requires a) being in partnership with a AB person and b) a 3-6 hour commitment to be able to paddle. Yikes! Also doesn't accomodate heat/cold issues. This looks better suited to individual pace - thanks for the video.

  2. Glad you like the blog! It's too bad they put those conditions on the program because kayaking is one of those sports that really can be done by a lot of people if they're allowed to go at their pace.
