Paddle tag is a hoot and you can bend the rules to suit your liking. Essentially, the rules are the same as tag except the person who is it can only tag another person by touching paddle blades (not shafts). No holding or pushing of your opponent's paddle and no skirt pulling, but pretty much everything else is fair game. Fun for extended flat water sections or in a pool. Helmets recommended.
*As the game gets boring you can spice it up a bit with additional rules:
-Only use the left blade for tagging.
-Must perform an offside roll, cartwheel, or squirt before tagging someone new.
-No tag backs.
-If you are tagged, but manage to flip the person who tagged you before they get away they are still it.
