A PFD (Personal Floatation Device) is required for all of our paddles. Do you have your own PFD or have acces to one?
Yes, and I wear it at all times.
Please tell us a little about your previous kayaking experience. It's okay if you don't have a lot of experience.
I'm an active member of the Watersedge Meetup and have been paddling since 2000. I'm proficient with assisted and self rescues.
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.
I have a WS Tempest 165 and a Dagger Savannah 14.5'
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?
I must be one of the crazies. I paddle to see things you can't see from land, to enjoy nature, or just get away from it all for a few hours.
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 to have more paddling options, meet people, explore, socialize and improve my skills. Sort of all of the above.
I'm Mark, I'm an avid kayaker and always in search of new places to paddle and new paddling friends!
