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

Doing sea kayaking for last three years. Took multiple classes and few trips at 41 North. Still consider myself a beginner. Have my own kayak and often go paddling on local lakes (LaDue, Pymatuning ). I'm fine with wet exit with sea skirt. Can get back to kayak using paddle float. Eskimo roll is still a challenge.

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?

Yes, absolutely.

Describe your sea kayaking 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.

18' kayak (foot pump built-in), paddle, spare paddle, spray skirt, PFD, paddle float.

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

Took a trip (4 hours) with 41 North from Whiskey Island to Rock'N'Roll museum - Sunset Tour.

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



Victor Benenson, fall in love with open water kayaking 5 years ago on trip to La Verendrye, Quebec. Later bought my own kayak and start learning how to kayak on small lakes and reservoirs of NE Ohio and Western Pennsylvania.
