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

Yes

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

For several years, I've kayaked almost every day during my one week summer vacation in Maine, mostly on Damariscotta Lake. In 2013, it occurred to me that I should kayak more in the DC area, and I bought my Looksha 12Si at an end-of-season sale.

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.

Maryland: Current Designs Willow, Necky Looksha 12Si Maine: LLBean Calypso 12', Necky Manitou 13'

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?

Relaxation, enjoying nature, and getting some exercise too

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?

Socializing with other paddlers and exploring new areas, not to mention safety in numbers

Introduction
