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.

Was given my first kayak at age 50. Totally addicted since then. Have progressed from my first Swifty 9.5 to my current favorite Impex Cat 4. I have taken lessons from Potomac Paddlesports, and I have a beautiful first half of a roll, and can do a wet exit/re-entry and pump!! I have kayaked with manatees in Florida, dolphins in SC, and copperheads in the Potomac. I dream of kayaking in Alaska and with whales. I love to kayak in all conditions. I love to kayak. Period.

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.

Impex Force Cat 4, CD Sirocco, Pungo, CD Double Vision, Hobie Mirage Revolution, CLC Cape Charles, kayak trailer

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?

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE TO PADDLE :)

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?

all the above
