How many years have you been paddling?

Hard to remember, been paddling a canoe since I could walk just about.

What type or model kayak/canoe do you own?

Old Town (older model) canoe, RTM tango (11.5 feet/sit on top), and a little tiny kayak I use in small rivers.

What other outdoor sports do you enjoy?

Bike riding, walking, hiking, snowshoeing. Get me outside and I will like most anything.

What formal or informal training have you had and what skills? ie Able to do wet exit and re-entry, can do eskimo roll, have taken kayak safety courses

I have had informal lessons from kayakers. I have a sit on top kayak and have been shown how to get back on top if I fall off. I have practiced a few times in fresh water and a couple of times in the ocean. I'm fairly new to kayak so I clearly have a lot to learn.

Based on the Skill Levels on our Web Site About Us http://www.meetup.com/NESeacoastPaddlers/about/ What Level kayaker are you?



I have used a canoe for years, but as my boys got older, it got a bit tough to carry around by myself. My cure, kayaking. I tried it for the first time this past summer and love it! I kayaked at least 3-4 times a week. It was my zen!
