I feel comfortable up to about a class 3, can roll & can read rivers. I'm used to the Chesapeake Bay & Md/PA/VA waters, but now in AZ and just go back & forth on the little lakes with my poodle..... LOL
My main boat is a Perception Swing (sit-on-top), 13 ft. Its more of an all purpose/bigger water boat; a Wilderness Systems, Ripper (sit-on-top) surf boat; and a closed deck Perception, Umiak sea kayak.
The Prescott Lakes, Lake Powell & Pleasant & the Verde. My favorite is Lake Pleasant. My white-water days are over til I can purchase a more fitting boat for the occasion.
I've been paddling since about 1983. Went white-water rafting & 3 days later bought a Perception Dancer whitewater boat. Now since I moved to AZ I have a Perception Swing sit-on-top. My poodle & I hit the lakes around Prescott. Hope to meet you all
Anyone who enjoys being on the water really needs to be a part of a group. Its unsafe to paddle alone, and its good to be around knowledgeable people who can help one learn the ropes, give advice and offer a hand ~
