Kayaking demo in Stevens Point promotes safe boating

STEVENS POINT (WAOW) -- With the weather heating up, more people are getting out and trying water sports.

Divepoint Scuba gave people a chance to try out kayaking in Stevens Point.

Several instructors were on hand to help with getting in and out of the kayaks as well as teaching how to be safe on the water.

Some people who showed up had been kayaking before, but there were also beginners.

"With our demo, we do a little basic instruction," said kayak instructor Ahna Butt. "'This is how you hold the paddle. This is how you properly wear the life jacket and sit in the boat,' and I think that promoting safety is probably one of the best things that we can do."

Stand up paddle boards were also available to try out.
