Worked for me – I was lucky enough to have parents who paddled and was introduced to the sport at a very early age.

Allowing my daughter to ‘play’ with my kit is stage one of my master plan.

Here we see her perfecting her ‘Hanging Draw’ and testing the ‘Bilge Master’ pump from Northwater (review coming soon).

To date it seems to be working as she has informed me that she wants to paddle to the Isle of Wight with Daddy in a sparkly pink sea kayak – looks like a Rockpool then!!!
