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

Retired after about 1000 years of running a medical lab.

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?

Now hitting, I believe, my fifth season of kayaking. Took an intro and rolling class prior to buying my first kayak. Have kayaked Lake Erie, Lake Huron, and Lake Superior. Last fall I tried salt water. I consider myself a beginner with decent self rescue abilities. Have practiced tows and assisted rescues. I get wet in a RockPool Alaw TCC.

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.

Just over 17 feet and I have a couple of 'skirts and use them whenever I'm on (or in) the water.

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

Yes. Both sides of the Cleveland area and also South Bass Island. Never have kept track of distance.

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

No answer yet

Introduction

Byron Walter... I've been kayaking since 2009. Enjoy getting wet and knocked around in the water. Met a few of your group at West Branch today (5/27/12). Thanks for taking me aboard.
