Why are you interested in this Meetup?

I've been paddling actively for the past 2 years and want to explore the kayaking opportunities in the Bay Area.

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.

I am intermediate in skill level. I have taken Kayak Group Leadership training and Red Cross Wilderness First Aid with the Chesapeake Paddling Association. I enjoy long distance paddles +16 miles and enjoyed padding in the the surf zone and coastal waters.

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?

The kayaking scene in the Central Coast region is now my home base.

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

I am currently paddling a self built skin on frame, Cape Falcon F1, 14 feet in length with closed deck and float bags.

Please read the waiver in the "More / Files" section.



KA has been the go to group for paddling the Central Coast. I don't miss the Chesapeake Bay as much since I started kayaking with the Alliance.

What Michael N. is saying about this Meetup Group

John was a great leader for my first trip out with the KA. I look forward to more trips ahead.
