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

I have eight, you know... in case I lose weight or something.

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

I started paddling on my backyard lake 28ish years ago. I used to prefer small, scenic, fast moving rivers with rapids class III or less, though this group has coaxed me out into the bay. I don't have many boats that fit on them anymore, but I'm always happy to show off the lesser know Pipe Creeks and Patuxent Rivers to friends (did you know there's three each?)

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.

16' Hobie Adventure Island Trimaran Miragedrive sit-on-top kayak, 16' Dagger Meridian SK (glass), 15.5' Wilderness Systems Zephyr Pro (glass), 15' Liquid Logic Seneca, 14' Mi Designs Touring, 12' Hand made hybrid hull paddleboard, 6' Liquid Logic Ronin

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?

To explore the places nobody else bothers to.

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?

I want people to sample my campstove cooking in places where its easy to stash bodies if it all goes awry.


I have a different boat for every trip. Sometimes I carry a chainsaw and camp stove with me. I make wooden paddles too! Want one?
