A PFD (Personal Floatation Device) is required for all of our paddles. Do you have your own PFD or have acces to one?


Please tell us a little about your previous kayaking experience. It's okay if you don't have a lot of experience.

I'm new at it, but love it. I've introduced 5 people to the sport in the month I particiated. I can't get enough of it. I know I like flatwater & think I can handle rivers but not sure. I can't wait to get back out on the water. I think I'd be out now if I had a kayak

What kind or type of kayak(s) do you own? If you'll be renting or borrowing from a friend that's okay too. We also have rental kayaks for members to use.

I don't have one. I have been using the Wilderness Adventure Pungo 12'.

Why do you kayak? Some people paddle to relax and get away from it all outdoors, others to stay fit. The real crazies paddle just for the joy and fun of it. What's your reason?

I like the excitment of exploring small tributaries, nature, excercise and comraderie. I always wanted to try it now I'm so sorry I didn't start earlier. I live in upper Montgomery County along the C&O canal.

What do you hope to get out of joining this group? Some people want to improve their paddling skills others just want to socialize with fellow paddlers. Is there anything special you're looking for?

I'd like the socialization, skill improvment and information on equipment


I picked up Kayaking on the Black Hills Lake in Germantown, MD. at the beginning of September '12 and absolutely loved it. I was out on the lake every weekend at least one or both weekend days until they closed at the end of September.
