When it comes to buying rowing equipment, there are really only three things that you need: The rowing boat, the oars, and the seats. But these parts are really only the very basic and if you do a search on Google, you will see that there actually many parts that go into a row boat. If you want to know what they are, do as we did and do a search on Google.
Rowing is a sport that started thousands of years ago during ancient Egyptian times. The idea is for a team to sit on the row boat and paddle together in sync and fast enough so that they reach the finish line first.
The sport is definitely not for everyone because paddling in itself is very tiring -imagine the strength you need to paddle for sport. But even if you’re not the sporty type, you can still enjoy rowing.
Imagine for a moment that you are on calm lake or a tropical beach where the water is calm. You can paddle yourself back and forth to a certain destination and enjoy yourself while you’re at it. There are many people who do it as a hobby, mainly because there is peace in being one with the water.
Anyway, if you’re keen on taking up rowing as a new hobby, the first thing you need to do is take up some rowing lessons. You can learn how to row from your local rowing club. Just go to Google and type in “rowing club” and then the name of your city or local area.
Whatever you do, never miss out on any of your classes because there are things about rowing that you need to learn aside from paddling. You can have group lessons or private lessons? Not sure which one to take? Ask your local rowing club representative.
