I have been asked to expand my instruction of basic kayaking to include a women specific class. I am excited because I have always enjoyed paddling with and tried to encourage other female paddlers. I have been trying to research the women-specific instruction phenomena that seems to be growing in popularity across the country as increasing numbers of women take up two-bladed paddles, but I am not finding much that is substantive. Anna L. seems to have done the most noteworthy work in trying to explain the differences that make women unique from their male peers in paddling. I am interested in knowing the thoughts and perceptions of other female paddlers.
