Selfies may have been tagged as too much inclination to vanity or merely waste of time, yet come those time where they may serve a different purpose.
Self taken portraits have been extremely popular on almost anyone who is using a smart phone, tablet, phablet and to the adventurous DSLRs- that does not exempt my paddler friends. You see, an entire race day can last from 7am til 4 pm, and during those stale moments of anxiously waiting for our next heat (race) nothing beats the saying ” the team that selfies together stays together”.
Grab a smartphone, choose your favorite filter, click on front camera and in a matter of seconds just like bees swarming you will find a whole bunch of paddlers ready for there best selfie taken. Moreover, these selfie shots have also become a social connection, a binding factor that together we will all smile no matter what happens. ( cheesy)
So when the time comes and you wanted to try dragonboat racing for a sport, you gotta have your paddlers’ checklist ready and that probably includes a selfie capable phone, paddles up!
