Tell us a little about yourself.

I live in south Charlotte near Boyce park, where I walk my dog and ride a hybrid bike. I had a fx rt wrist and 4 surgeries (from scuffle when a pitbull attacked my husky) which delayed buying a kayak and participating. Planning to get one in 2015.

Do you currently kayak, camp or go hiking?

walk, hike, kayak (in rentals), but not camping

What type of paddling do you prefer? ie. whitewater, flatwater, day trips, weekend adventures.

I think I prefer flatwater because that is all I have done. I might like easy flowing rivers but not rapids and rocks!


Kayaked off HH Island many times, around Pinckney Island once, Mtn. Island Lake (all with rentals). Want a kayak under 40lbs. Talked to Swift Kayak about kevlar composite 13'2" 36lb w/skeg. Perception has a 37lb 12' Tribute. Any advice?
