Check out this paddler’s guide to changing in public…
A friend uses this method – clip a towel to your open door for an instant changing room.
Practice with a big beach towel around waist. This is my main method.
Get a van to change in.
- Wear your wetsuit or dry suit to your launch location (my winter solution).
Tips for Staying Warm
- Wear a warm hat while changing to stay warm.
- While changing, stand on a closed cell camping pad to stay warmer
- Bring a gallon of water, pest spray pump container or a Rinse Kit to have warm water after your paddle and to clean your feet and gear.
- Keep a hot water thermos on hand to warm up
