You can kayak virtually any place along the San Diego coastline. Kayaking involves paddling a small craft through water. It is a low-impact activity that can improve your aerobic fitness, strength and flexibility. More importantly, kayaking can be done as a hobby, a competitive sport or as a fun activity.
Have fun while you:
- • Improved cardiovascular fitness
- • Increased muscle strength, particularly in the back, arms, shoulders and chest, from moving the paddle
- • Increased torso and leg strength, as the strength to power a canoe or kayak comes mainly from rotating the torso and applying pressure with your legs
- • Reduced risk of wear-and-tear on joints and tissues, since paddling is a low impact activity.
