Beginner

Do you accept responsibility for your own safety and the safety of any guest you bring, while kayaking with the group? yes or no.

Yes

Please write briefly about kayak safety? Name a hazard and how you avoid it.

I have a lot to learn about kayak saftey. One concern of mine is being visible to motor boats and avoiding the. I see that they make a reflective tape to put along the side of the kayak. Ive been white water rafting many class 5 rapids and one saftey tip I learned doing that was if trapped in an eddy under a fall to curle up in a ball and it should release you. Not sure if I will ever encounter that here but good t know regardless.
