Stretching for Torso Rotation and Kayak Paddling Performance
You can just jump onto the river and stretch out as you paddle down the river, but why be stiff and clumsy for those first hours of every kayaking trip? You'll perform better and have more fun on the river if you do the stretching exercises you need before you put in !!
Stretching may not be that important for flexible, young kids, but stiff, old men like me really need to pay attention to stretching if we want to keep on paddling down our favorite rivers.

You do sound like an old man! Great site. The large font just drives the old guy thing home. I'll probably do the same thing on my blog.
