1. kayaking is a water sport
My trail of thought goes along the lines of........ if you can't beat it join it.
Now correct me if I am wrong, but kayaking is a water sport, which means I am floating on a wet substance, I dip my paddle into the wet substance, sometimes I even dangle my fingers in the wet stuff for the heck of it. On occasions I surf the wet stuff for excitement, or very occasionally I even jump in and fully submerge myself in the wet stuff, and during all of this I am having a super fun time. So why do people care if wet stuff falls from the sky.
Embrace it. I love watching the rain fall on the water. Those incredible little droplets bouncing in their millions, creating a ever changing pattern and that soft hissing noise. Hell I even love being inside my hood watching the world from my little comfy dry place.

3. Rain doesn't stop Nature, so why stop us
In my experience I seem to see the best wildlife when its chucking it down. Sea kayaking takes you amongst nature and shows you an incredible array of wildlife, all of which thrive on, in, or around the ocean and because water is a huge part of there habitat it doesn't faze them in the slightest. We seem to have forgotten that we too poses waterproof skin, at the end of a wet day all we need is some dry cloths and a hot shower and we are back to normal.
4. its as good as jumping in puddles
When I was a kid puddles just seem to pull me in, beg me to jump, splash and get wet. Now I spend my life kayaking on a gigantic puddle. Clients just love a cheeky splash, and they certainly take great pleasure in soaking their kayak instructor when ever possible. I think it is a case of embracing the fun that you can have when you just don't care about getting soaking wet.
5. Your hot chocolate taste soooo much better
Getting cold an wet can always be fixed by a hot chocolate. After you come of the water you'll have earn't that amazing super hot chocolate with cream and sprinkles on top. Nothing tastse better than a hot drink you really deserve.
