Are you ready?
Don’t be like Grumpy Cat.
Get a seat-pad if you want to survive.
We take them pretty seriously.
Dig it in!
Stop the boat!!
Well, the sport isn’t, but the command is!
You’re gonna make a lot of fanatical friends.
When they say go, you GO!
Hit and Glide.
Y’all know what I’m talking about.
Another word for the ‘Strokes’. AKA MUSCLES.
You can’t have a team without the Jerseys!

In case you don’t know what this word means, trust me, you’ll know how it feels…
Xaern = enjoying something so much you begin to hate how much you like it. YEP.
Y’all gonna need it, trust me.
Zest For Life!
All my fellow paddlers will understand the feeling!
