How to use paddle in a sentence?

  1. Cruise Passenger Lynch:

  2. Richard Theoharis:

    He’s very capable on the paddle board so it seems fishy to me, he was under pressure. He owed $600,000 and he didn’t have it. He was afraid the judge would throw him in jail. If he’s scared, we hope he will contact us. Make a phone call. Just let somebody know you’re safe so we can rest at night.

  3. Fedor Baart:

    We didn't know exactly when the inmates launched their boats, or their precise starting point, and so we decided to release 50 'boats' every 30 minutes between 20:00 and 04:00 (11 p.m. and 4 a.m.) from a range of possible escape spots at Alcatraz to see where they would end up, we added a paddling effect to the 'boats,' as we assumed the prisoners would paddle as they got closer to land.

  4. Jacob Braude:

    Always behave like a duck - keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the devil underneath.

  5. Melissa Romero:

    When I first started I couldn't paddle more than five minutes at a time. Now I can probably do an hour continuous.
