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've paddled with the Wednesday Night Paddlers and have not only survived the experience but have enjoyed it. I can perform wet exits and re-entries and T rescues.

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 have Tempest 170s - plastic and Kevlar and two rec boats.

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 kayaking for the reasons you stated plus I like the feelings of freedom and independence mixed with responsibility. It brings out the adventurer and boy scout in me.

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?

Improving paddling skills and socializing with like-minded people is a great combination!


Hello, I have been kayaking since August 2010 and I love it! I enjoy being outdoors in the fresh air, on the water, and seeing the world from a different perspective.
