I'd like to meet other paddlers from the bay area, especially San Rafael and surrounding areas.
Intermediate. In the last couple years, I've learned to teach some kayaking basics like efficient forward stroke, self- and assisted rescues, and towing.
Yes, I'm willing to suggest and host paddles, especially launching from spots in Marin.
Yes, I own a closed-deck composite P&H Capella, a closed-deck composite Current Designs Infinity (came with a skeg and added a rudder) that I use for racing and expeditions, and a plastic P&H Delphin that I use for playing along the coast and local tide rips. Also a folding boat (a Folbot Cooper) which hasn't seen any use since I got my first hard-shell boat.
I've been kayaking for about the past 10 years, starting with rentals while on vacation. Now that I have my own boat, I get out on the Bay every chance I get! I'm a member of BASK (Bay Area Sea Kayakers) and did their skills clinic in 2011.
