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

Of course.

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

Almost none.

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.

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?

All of the above. Relaxation is important, staying fit is always a goal, and finding activities that take me out doors while doing the first two is the real key.

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?

My goals include improving my paddling skills but also to find new places to kayak. Finally, would really like to find someone to help me to figure out how I can load and unload the kayak from the top of my van without dropping it on me or dragging it down the side of the van! This is the major obstacle to me going kayaking.
