November Paddling – Update

In my blog post last week, I noted that I bought some new cold water paddling gear, including surf booties and neoprene gloves, and would provide an update when I got out for a fall paddle. I’m happy to report that last weekend I made it out onto Lake Ontario (SUPing in mid-November…I was so excited :)) and had the opportunity to try out the new gear. My two friends and I started out near the Water’s Edge Park near the Bronte Marina in Oakville, Ontario. The water here is so clear and the white sand bottom made it look nearly tropical. It was a beautiful day. The unseasonably warm weather rendered the gloves unnecessary this time around, however, the surf booties were fantastic. They kept my feet dry and warm. I would recommend them for anyone who is considering paddling in cold water at any time of year. Stay tuned for more updates on the cold water paddles as the weather gets colder 🙂

  1. Wow! If I lived somewhere else I would never guess that these are photos of Ontario in November – So great that you can be on the lake right now.
