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

I have an old school one --and am looking for a better version.

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

I have solo whitewater canoe experiences--only lower class. I have just discovered kayaking with the over 40 group and I love it---much easier than canoeing. I want to explore it more and am looking to buy my own kayak.

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.

None-looking to buy--will need to rent now.

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 love paddling the ripples. Its just me against the current and the waves and the wind--kind of like a chess game with the water. When I finish a paddle--i feel invigorated. Whoooweee!!

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?

A group of like minded people to paddle with.


Hi! Loving life on the water!!
