I have a Nimbus Telkwa HV kayak that holds a lot of gear! You want me on your long distance kayak camping trips

Drysuit, semi-dry top and pants, knee-high rubber boots, shorter booties, gloves, storm cag.

Wet exit, self and assisted rescue as rescuer and rescuee. Paddle float, rescue strap.

Rivers, lakes, ocean swells not surf. Comfortable in level 3 conditions. Successfully accomplished one rescue (not a drill) in hard level 3, minimal level 4 conditions.
