I've been learning for 14 years, and have lots more to learn. I enjoy rolling kayaks Greenland style and camping out of a kayak. I am an ACA Level 3 Coastal Kayak instructor.
I have a small fleet. Favorites include a Greenland skin-on-frame, a Dagger Meridian and an NDK Explorer. Most recently, I built a Pygmy Murrelet.
Two spots - Lake George and the Hudson River.
I've paddled canoes since I was a kid, buying my first in 1972. I started kayaking in 2000 and did the Hudson River from Albany to Manhattan in 2002. Retiring from real life in 2007, I started working with Atlantic Kayak Tours, helping to start their Norrie Point State Park paddlesport center. I love helping people add to their kayaking skills.
I love kayaks, kayaking and sharing the sport with others. I instruct, guide, build kayaks and carve Greenland paddles. I hope to meet all of you on the water!
Great group of fun people!
