The ACA is proud to introduce the new Paddle Smart WebTV Series. This series was made possible by generous grant funding provided through the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund, which is administered by the United States Coast Guard. The goal of this video series is to reduce paddlesport related accidents by providing immediate knowledge through short and focused instructional videos.

Are you a beginner that is excited to get on the water for your very first time, or perhaps an intermediate paddler that has never taken any formal paddlesport training? If so then please checkout the following Paddle Smart Web TV Series. These video series are designed to provide you with the need to know information required to make smart decisions and stay safe on the water. The series cover the paddlesports disciplines of Stand Up Paddleboarding, Recreational Kayaking and Kayak Fishing and each series consists of 12 episodes that are entertaining and to the point.
