Sofa Paddler

Are you sitting on the sofa in your Covid-free zone right now? Have you already warmed up your smartphone processor with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and more?

Why not spend the time paddling virtually and enjoy YouTube training videos? Wonderful to refresh your paddling knowledge.

Save the Sorba

The Valsesia in Piedmont is a paradise for those who seek unspoilt nature, both in summer and winter. In summer it invites you to go hiking, in winter its high mountains attract ski tourers. And in spring, when the snow melts, it becomes a Mecca for kayakers and fly-fishers.

The Rassa is famous among kayakers because the Teva Mountain Games used to take place here. Unfortunately, the hunger for energy is calling for new river constructions even in this unspoilt area, but resistance is stirring.

Freeriver.org describes the new construction project in more detail. With your active voice of the online edition you can actively support the protection of the Sorba.

We have moved

Kayakers belong and after paddling to the river and after paddling to the fire to lose themselves in tales of robbers.

We are now located as Lütisburg

That is why we have moved closer to the clock again in November 2020. You will now find the KCW with boathouse right next to the old wooden bridge in Lütisburg. So it’s ideal to get into the boat and after paddling enjoy the big grill place.

Here are a few impressions of the reconstruction.

Respect Nature

For us paddlers nature is the basis for this wonderful sport. But many other leisure activities also benefit the environment and too much activity can lead to stress. This is why the Federal Office for the Environment has launched the Respect Nature initiative. Short video messages explain the rules of conduct for sports activities in nature – which also apply to paddlers. It’s worth a look.
