What kind and size of kayak(s) do you Have?

I rent mine from MWR right now. Have the ability to rent 1 - 6 kayaks with a trailer that they let me use for my truck.

How long have you been paddling?

Once/twice a year with kids. Now they are older and want to do it for me.

What types of paddle events are you hoping for from this organization?

Any really. As long as I'm riding with experienced kayakers, I do crossfit so strength isn't an issue. I need to learn paddle skill and water navigation. I already do orienteering on land with map and compass. I'm not just comfortable paddling alone and realize that isn't safe either.

Do you agree to wear your life jacket on all meetup paddles?

yes!

Do you know how to dress for paddling in cold weather?

No

Introduction

Hello! I'm new to kayaking and would love more opportunities to do so and improve my skills. I do adventure races and never have felt comfortable with the kayak portions!
