The second best material for a canoe is the hard plastic material polyethylene. Hasle PE 530 is a steady and stable canoe with a good paddle feeling. A polyethylene canoe in sandwich construction with one layer of small, separated air cells which make the canoe buoyant. The buoyant construction improves the safety of the canoes and give packing space in the front and at the back of the canoe (since flotation blocks are not required). To be compared with canoes without inbuilt buoyancy, with flotation blocks of foam blocking the space in the front and in the back of the canoe.

We have an uneven number of paddlers - what to do ?

The most common question at a Canoe Center is: "How can everyone participate when we have an uneven number of people? Is it necessary to drop somebody back home?" The answer is no. The salvation is the sea kayak and all hesitations and queries concerning kayaking are explained in the kayak section. Paddling in canoes as planned and simply adding one kayak is an excellent option, and provides a golden opportunity for all in the group to try kayaking. Read about kayaking >>

How to pack our gear ?

Most of the canoe is open and you are recommended to protect your equipment from getting wet. It is recommeded to pack your gear in water-proof bags. Water-proof bags of 60 litre capacities are available for rent. An option is to pack in plastic bags. More about additional equipment >>

Our teenagers are beginning to lose interest in the yearly holiday paddling - What to do ?

"We parents have a strong desire to do the holiday paddling together with our teenagers, but they' re starting to lose the interest. Is there any good trick to use?"

The answer and the advise is easy. The introduction of sea kayaks to the market came as something fresh and created a trend. It is both cool and trendy to kayak. This is something which is very important to teens who are very conscious of what other people think. Besides, kayaking is very fun.

With this simple advise, many parents keep their children on paddling vacations throughout the teenage year. Read about kayaking >>
