Yes, and my awesome dog Trixie has one too : )
I used to have a serious aversion to water after almost drowning twice as a child. I learned to kayak in the US VI's about 6 years ago and have been doing it sporadically ever since. Didn't begin to think about kayaking as an actual "thing' to do regularly until winter started disappearing and I wanted something outdoorsy to do that wasn't dependent on a season per se and to burn off some energy (should read: to burn off ridiculous amount of calories consumed during the day). I would classify myself as a beginner I haven't had a whole lot of training aside from some basic how not to die instruction I received when first starting.
I've been using the Emotion Bliss but I am considering a Perception Tribute but it doesn't come in pink-- no joke, haha.
Kayaking is fun and can be very adventurous it is also very peaceful and restorative there is nothing like a beautiful open body of water. Also, I am not extremely athletic-- no softball, basketball, etc. for this girl I am dreadfully uncoordinated. However, I love that kayaking is pretty low impact but you definitely get a good aerobic and anaerobic work out.
I definitely would like to improve my skills seeing how I don't have many. It would also be nice to meet some other rad paddlers to go out and explore with in the water and on land.
Kayaking, Dragon Boat Racing, & Cupcake Making... Oh My!
