Why are you interested in this Meetup?

While I enjoy the flexibility of paddling alone, I'm looking forward to paddling in a group environment more often as well.

What skill level are you? It really makes no difference if you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced kayaker. We ask so we can better plan our trips.

Intermediate...comfortable in bay waters, wind and chop however I'm hoping to learn more about open ocean paddling.

This is YOUR group! Tell me what you'd like to gain from being a member. Would you be willing to suggest and host paddles?

Pick up additional experience from areas I've never paddled before, learn new skills from paddling "vets" and having a great time on the water! Yes, I'd be willing to host a paddle after attending a few.

Do you own your own boat? If so, is it a sit on top or closed deck?

3 closed deck kayaks (1 15ft touring kayak, 2 10ft rec kayaks).

Please read the waiver and skills self evaluation in the "More / Files" section.



Been paddling a dozen years or so but only started paddling often 3 years ago. My wife occasionally joins me as well but prefers lake waters.
