Land Paddling On A Snow Day In Seattle

Land paddling in Seattle is not really a year round activity. 

It rains a lot most of the year, and in fall/winter, when the temperatures drop, only the most dedicated spend time land paddling, and having fun.

And we at "Seattle Kite, Surf, Paddle" are among those crazy ones who enjoy land paddling in any weather !

There is something special about land paddling in the snow ! It's like combining longboarding, snowboarding, and paddleboarding in one. 

And the surroundings are breathtaking ! Because there is nothing quite as serene as seeing your beloved city in a fresh sheet of snow. It's truly magical making your first tracks in the snow.

Most longboards, and land paddles are not designed for snow conditions. But we use our trusted Onda board to get us rolling, and sliding like we're on a snowskate.

Onda is a one-of-a-kind high performance longboard skateboard that'll make you glide much faster and longer.  It is the most versatile longboard, great for cruising and carving as well as land-paddling in all conditions, even on snow covered, icy surfaces !

The Onda Board has ultra large wheels that will give you a smooth ride over all kinds of terrain - over concrete, grass, dirt, uneven pavement, and snow/ice.

Land paddling in the snow is not only looks like a lotta fun but is also a very good workout. Especially in the snow !

Land paddling ( or exercising in general ) in colder weather also has numerous health benefits :
  • It's a great way to take in small doses of sunlight
  • Winter exercise boosts immunity during cold and flu season
  • You'll burn more calories
  • It will make you feel more awake and invigorated
  • Exercising in extreme temperatures ( hot or cold ), has shown the ability to enhance endurance and mental edge
  • It's fun !!

Here at "Seattle Kite, Surf, Paddle", we make the most of cold, rainy conditions !

So, if you're looking for amazing adventures to add to your Bucket List, or things to do in Seattle on a rainy day (  or once a year, on a snow day !! ), book your tour with us ! 

Our board of choice to for land paddling in the snow ?

As for a land paddle, we I used our favorite Kahuna Creations Adjustable Kahuna Big Stick... which, unfortunately, didn't work very well on icy, slippery surface. 

And on a thin layer of snow their Snow Grip Replacement ( normally used for snow paddling ) would also be useless.
