In 2004, we began a project to make paddling accessible to all. This project produced the Universal Paddling Seat. Since then, Creating Ability has developed and provided fully outfitted kayaks and adaptations to enable people of all abilities to participate in the sport of adaptive kayaking. We travel tens of thousands of miles annually, volunteering at various events and venues in support of persons with disabilities and their families. We provide on-site support, education, and outfitting to enhance the lives of the participants and to enable them to experience the freedom and independence the world of paddlesports can bring.
