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


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

Just some flat water experience recently on the Potomac (via Thompson Boat Center rentals) and occasional paddling in a folbot. Use a rowing machine for exercise several times a week.

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.

Just got my Wilderness Tsunami 145 this winter, along with cold water gear.

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?

Just to be on the water.

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?

Learn proper paddling technique, socialize.


I'm a middle aged program director for a scientific society who wants to rediscover his youthful love of being on the water.
