Packraft is a raft of light and convenient, but but is it easy to paddle?
It depends. If you just want to get and enjoy easy water, all you need is a PFD, basic paddling skills, and good judgment to have a great time.
We know of packrafters in their 80’s and of many toddlers who have completed extended trips in the front of their parents boat.
If you want to do big back-country traverses or challenging whitewater, you will need specialized skills for those adventures and you can learn a lot by taking a swift-water rescue class or a kayaking course to learn water safety
and paddling technique.
