How would you describe your kayaking experience? e.g. beginner (not been out yet to a few times), novice(been out more than a dozen times), kayak regularly (been out lots of times),been-there-done- that.(out in all conditions)

I am a beginner and have basically been on quiet lakes and rivers.

Do you own a kayak? If so, what kind?

yes I have a santee 116.

Do you accept responsibility for your own safety while kayaking with the group? yes or no.


Are you aware of safety gear and how to use it? Please write briefly about a safety item that you use when you kayak and why you use it?

My PDF is the most valuable piece of safety item that I own and use.

What sort of kayaking are you hoping to do with this group? (and be creative here... locations, scheduling, distances/lengths of time, etc.)

I am looking for anything that will increase my knowledge of kayaking! For the present time I have been out on Collins Lake in Scotia,Moreau State Park,Shermans Island on the Hudson River, Dunham Resv near Grafton State park and also on the Mohawk out of lock 7. Hopefully in the next week I will also try Caroga Lake and Ballston Lake (finally something near my home) lol I am available to kayak 7 days a week,2-3 hours not sure about distance.
