    Plan to come tomorrow again with my daughter. Need to borrow a kayak again, if possible. Practice paddling stroke, flipping and preliminary for rolling.

    Great day with everyone that had patience with helping out novice paddlers. Thank you for bringing a kayak for practice and helping us try some techniques.

    This will be my first practice and I hope to join the paddles frequently this summer. I purchased a rec. kayak last summer and went a few times a month from June through August. I would need some assistance.

      Probably. But a lot depends on what you are expecting to do. It would be best if you called me so we could have a conversation.

    Hi Roger I will attend practice on sat and am wondering if you would have time to teach me bacics of rolling. I have a dagger max rpm and all of the gear?

      Ok. We'll plan on it. That boat is good to learn rolling in. As long as you have a neoprene skirt that fits it properly we will be good to go

    Downhill skiing on this date, but I'll be at the pool practices on Feb. 8 and 15 to work on my roll. I deeply appreciate your commitment to helping us rookies learn.
