Tell us about yourself and your sea paddling experience including wet exit experience with a sea skirt.

I am a member of the Akron sail and power squadron. I enjoy all forms of boating and have been boating all my life. I am also a full certificate holder in the United States Power Squadrons which includes advanced celestial navigation. I am currently a ACA level 1 kayak instructor and I teach approximately 7 beginning kayak classes each summer in the Akron portage lakes area. We enjoy paddling in the portage lakes area as well as the islands of Lake Erie. I am experienced in wet exits and reentry's as well as T/TX rescues. I have all associated equipment including spray skirts. I have not yet learned to roll which I plan to do so.

While we welcome beginner kayakers and want to encourage those seeking sea kayaking learning events and experiences are you OK with being being excluded from events (for safety) based on your beginner status?

Not a beginner

Describe your sea kayaing gear including whether you have access to a boat. Include PFD, spray skirt, wet suit and any other gear you will bring and use for outings.

I have all associated equipment including spray skirts and dry suits..

Have you paddled on Lake Erie? If so, where and how far? There is no wrong answer to this question.

I have paddled on lake Erie numerous times. Especially around the western islands and Sandusky Bay

Is your profile picture an identifiable head shot of YOU and ONLY you? If not, you will be declined.

yes
