For many reasons, adaptive rowing is great. From the first hand accounts of adaptive athletes, they love the camaraderie, challenge, focus, and freedom that the water offers. At BoardSafe, we aim to empower individuals to maximize their potential and for many disabled athletes, adaptive rowing or adaptive paddling does just that.
Like many rowing centers across the globe, the Capital Rowing Club in Washington, DC has an adaptive rowing program replete with inspirational characters. One story that we came across was that of Joe Tezak, embodies why adaptive rowing is so great. Have a watch and get inspired!
