Second season with the group, paddling my surf skis for fitness, and still getting used to my Necky Arluk . If you are interested in surf ski paddling drop me a line!
I started paddling whitewater in the mid 90's in PA and WV. Comfortable with downriver runs and playing on class III rivers. I no longer paddle class IV. I paddle a Surf Ski on the lake and the ocean. I have an decent eskimo roll.
I plan on advancing my skills in open water this summer, and taking some clinics on Lake Michigan this spring. I am also interested in helping beginners get into the most excellent sport of Surf Ski paddling.
I have a Stellar SR Advantage 19' long and 19" wide, and a Hammerhead International Lifeguard Class ski of the same dimensions. I use a glass winged paddle.
I have surfed Edgewater at overhead wave heights in my whitewater boats. Paddled most of the local rivers at frigid high water, and local bays and coasts in my former time here.
Welcome to the group, Chris! We look forward to seeing you on the water ... Also love Marblehead ...
I'm not sure if I'm ready for kayaking but would enjoy hiking. Thanks for keeping me posted!
It was nice meeting you too, Chris. Thanks for your sharing your local insight into the area - interesting stuff.
