What new place do you want to paddle in this year?

South Sound.

What is your favorite place to paddle here in the NW?

Salmon Bay for the cool working boats to look at; Enetai for a number of choices.

What is your sea kayaking experience level (beginner, intermediate, expert)?

Low end of intermediate. No roll yet, but good rescue skills, strong stroke for long distance, some bracing but needs work.

Where are some of the places you have been kayaking?

Arboretum, Lakes Washington, Sammamish, Union, Easton. Mercer Slough. Elkhorn Slough in CA. Several times volunteered for Fat Salmon and triathlon swims. Through the locks (guided). San Francisco Bay tidelands.


I am probably an intermediate level (at best) kayaker who has recently lost my paddle buddy, due to my daughter going off to college. Need a group with whom I can safely paddle. Not a thrill junky; more of a float-and-burper.

What Michael M. is saying about this Meetup Group

Really just what I needed. I'm re-entering kayaking after almost two years off due to non-related injuries and this group affords me the opportunity to ease back into it and ramp up as I grow.
