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

Yes, of course. I never get in the boat without it. I'd feel naked!

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

As IO said, Potapsco at Daniels, Spa Creek, The West and South Rivers, Tuckahoe Creek, The Great Dismal, Tybee Island, Lake Norman NC. And lots more places.

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.

My main (only) boat is a Necky Manitou-14. Yes it's a plastic boat but I use my home made Greenland Style Paddles

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?

Why Kayak? Why Not!

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?

New paddling partners, and find new places to explore.


I try to spend at least one day a week paddling, The Potapsco in Daniels is close to home, but I'll drive a few hours to find a new place to explore - or anywhere inbetweek.
