Nearly anyone can do it, it’s great exercise and you can’t get closer to the water without being in it.
Those looking for a challenge can tackle whitewater rivers. Those seeking solitude might ply a lake. You can try it by renting a board and paddle. Day rentals start at $17 to $30. Wear a life jacket and, if rocks are present, a helmet.
