Yes but I swim almost every time I kayak so I keep it safely strapped to the hull in case the kayak starts to sink! ;) Sorry for my bad sense of humor, I wear it if the water is dangerous. But like I said earlier, I swim almost every time I kayak and a PFD just just doesn't work.
I kayaked the local rivers and resevoirs until about 6 years ago. Now I mostly paddle the bay and its marshes. I have a cabin south of Vienna and I often kayak Fishing bay. I have also done some surf kayaking as well as run the Yough in a duckie a few times. I have been able to eskimo roll but I lost it over the winter a couple years ago. I need to work on getting it back so I can white water kayak with my sons! I enjoy many water sports/activies from racing sunfish to scuba diving.
A couple touring kayaks, a big yak surf kayak and some rec kayaks but my 17 ft yellow Eclipse gets the most use.
I kayak to explore the waterways and see as much of nature as I can. If it helps get me some excersise all the better.
Find some new kayaking areas and make a few more kayaking friends. Maybe a few happy hour friends and dancing partners as well. :) Life is short play hard!
I have kayaked for 12 years and I am looking for some new kayaking friends and some new places to kayak. I would also like to learn from my peers as much as I can about kayaking and their equipment. I
Great way to get into kayaking! And a fun group to paddle with.
