How to empty a kayak
1/ When you fall in, turn the boat up the right way.
2/ Look for a safe place to get out of the river and swim the boat there, with the boat on the downstream side of you
3/ Push the nose of the boat down into the water
3/ Flip the boat upside down and raise the end you are holding at the same time. You may need to do this a few times
4/ When you’re ready get back in the boat, and continue your paddle.
Please do not lift a full boat up by the side. It can make the seams split. The last photo shows the wrong way to empty a boat.
