Rowing is a beautiful sport, but it is not easy to carry around an 8-meter long skif to discover a lake or a watercourse. The shorter and less fragile paddle is more easily transported and can be easily converted into a rowing boat.
Yes, but a paddle is not a rowing boat. Indeed and this is why the Canadian equipment manufacturer Oarboard (TM) has developed a lightweight solution to turn a paddle into a rowing boat.
The originality of the solution lies in the fact that the seat is fixed and it is the feet and the articulation of the oars that move.
Disturbing? Not so much and with the advantage that the center of gravity remains centered and makes the length of the boat less necessary.
The rowing facility attaches with two straps on the paddle.
