Weather is definitely one of those factors which can make or break a good paddle trip. Severe weather can pop up without notice to the unsuspecting individual. Careful observation and weather reports are factored within our risk assessments. Wind, wave and air/water temperatures are also major concerns. If properly dressed for the elements this will provide an extra level of safety/comfort. We will never paddle in severe weather conditions (active lighting, hail, tornado watches/warnings, small craft warnings, gale force winds, snow storms, or ice-covered landings, etc.). If such weather approaches us during a session, we will get off the water and evaluate the situation.
