FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(New Jersey) Paddle Partner recently released the 1.4 version of the iOS app designed to enhance the kayaking and canoeing experience. The new app harnesses the power of technology and smart device data to allow those on the water to navigate their paths without the use of paper maps.
“The vision of Paddle Partner was to create a user experience that was superior to other options available today,” stated company representative Kyle Wendel. “With the Delaware Water Gap Map kayakers and canoers can follow their selected path without fear of getting lost and enjoy the peace of mind that they always know where they are. No more hassle thanks to the paper-free navigation app. With this app, there is no reason to use traditional paper maps anymore.”
Up until now, water-lovers had to rely on paper maps for planning their canoeing and kayaking trips on the major park river trails because of no internet access, which is needed for other map navigation apps. The team at Paddle Partner saw the need for a solution to the paper map issue and created this new application, Paddle Partner provides offline navigation services.
Wendel continued, “The Mobile Map lets users see their maps in real-time, regardless of if they have an internet connection. With this app in use, adventurists can easily navigate their chosen destination and measure the distance to and from their desired landing point, view available campsites and their average paddling speed. After all, if WAZE and Google maps can get us to a destination on land, why can’t the Paddle Partner app get kayaks to their campsites near the water?”
Version 1.4 for the iOS was released in the spring of 2017 and there are plans to provide an Android version later in the year. To learn more about destinations, specific features and planned updates, those interested can visit www.paddlepartner.com/delawareriver/.

The Best Advice About Paddling I’ve Ever Written
Check the Sitting Positions To begin, you should know the sitting positions of you and your partner in the kayak. The rule of thumb is that the more experienced partner should navigate the kayak while the less experienced one helps in controlling rhythm. The person who is skilled should sit at the rear as the other person sits at the front.
The Beginners Guide To Paddling (Finding The Starting Point)
When it comes to sitting positions, it is also important to check the weight distribution of the kayak. If you are heavier than your partner, you should sit at the rear to keep the weight distribution of the kayak down. With more weight added at the rear, it will be easier to steer the kayak swiftly. Rhythmic Paddling If you want to enjoy your kayaking experience, you need to paddle in sync with your partner. The paddling is similar to how tandem cycling works. When you and your partner are paddling in sync, the kayak will easily move forward without a lot of effort. It is important to communicate and coordinate with your partner to ensure the kayak takes smooth turns and goes in the right direction. If you are sitting at the bow, you should initiate and lead the kayak rhythm. When there is proper coordination, you and your partner can easily steer the boat to the direction you want. If the paddling is not done in sync, the kayak can end up spinning in circles. When you go kayaking, try partner paddling. The above are two tips that will help you paddle together more.
