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

I can purchase one, but I would also like to learn about them so I could choose a comfortable one.

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

In the first week of this past September, I took a vacation to Assateague Park. There was a Kayak trip sponsored by the park that I participated in and I really loved the experience! This was my first time and I even managed to escape a full body baptismal!

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 would like to learn about them so I could purchase one.

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?

All of the above. It is a cool way to learn about the outdoors and experience wildlife first hand as the boats are so quiet!

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?

After my first kayaking experience I was excited to learn more and to find people who I could kayak with!


Being an artist/naturalist, I taught Art full-time and Env. Science part-time. Having loved and worked with animals, I am involved in their rescue. After taking Grad. classes in art, I am working on my home and yard to include art studio space.
