It was so liberating the first time I tried it. No confined spaces or numb legs and feet. Also there is no more fear of getting pinned upside down in your boat. If you fall off the bellyak, no problem, just climb back on. I USED to kayak. I have now found a new joy in river sports – the bellyak.
I love the connection to the water, it’s a lot like being in the ocean on a surfboard.
Adam and I have ran class IV whitewater with ease and there is so much potential for this sport to grow. It’s only the beginning and I can’t wait for spring to get back on my bellyak.
