I always wear my PFD when in the kayak.
Mostly tidal rivers and some ponds in a fishing kayak over the past 2 or 3 years.
I presently own two fishing kayaks. For the most part I paddle the Ocean Kayaks Prowler 13 which is a 13 foot sit on top. I do, however, see a strong likelihood of purchasing a touring kayak in the future.
Being on the water is good for my soul. Initially I bought the kayak as a fishing platform. This expanded to using it for photography (another passion I've developed over the past year.)
I hope to become a proficient and fit paddler. I want to find new challenges to improve myself. In addition the social aspect of meeting like minded people doing something we enjoy appeals to me.
Started out using the kayak as a fishing and photography platform. Now after attending a couple of meetups I'm getting hooked, no pun intended, on kayak touring and hopefully in the future camping.
