People learning how to kayak will find the Wall Paddler a fun way to train without having to get into the water. The Wall Paddler is also an excellent alternative for training during bad weather to maintain the core and upper body strength needed for successful kayaking. The Wall Paddler provides the exerciser with paddle strokes that mimic the paddling experience. The Wall Paddler is full adjustable to accommodate a wide range of exercisers depending on the paddler’s strength and individual preferences such as sitting for kayak training and standing for paddleboard training. The wall-mounted exerciser requires a minimal amount of space when not in use.
