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

No, but I can get one.

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

I grew up on the water and have enjoyed many different types of boating and water sports. I have kayaked several times in different types of boats and water. I have a lot to learn though!

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.

Initially, I will have to rent. I am very interested in buying a kayak, but I am not sure what would be the best boat for me to purchase.

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 am incredibly connected to the water. It is calming and requires the kind of presence that seems to slip away with each passing workday. Kayaking is also a great way to be social and stay active at the same time. Additionally, the kayak, unlike any other boat, puts me in the water as close to a fish as I can be without having to swim!

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 learn as much as I can about kayaking and where to kayak while having fun with a group of people who love it as much as I do!


Hello! As I've gotten older and the responsibilities of life have taken over, I have moved away from participating in what I love to do most. To that end, I am looking forward to reconnecting with the water and some great people! ~ Casey
