What kind of kayak(s) do you have, if any? Feel free to answer generally (recreational, touring, sea kayak, etc.) or specifically (color, length, make, model)

I do not have a kayak! I am looking to learn about the sport and safety first.

Where are your favorite places to paddle?

When I was a kid I lived in West Virginia and was trained and certified to be a white water raft guide at Ohiopyle. I love it there but I want to venture out west.

What kind of trips are you most interested in? (Easy, relaxed, fitness-paced, adventurous, social, urban, challenging, overnight camping, ??)

I'm all about growing into new lets start off easy and in no time I'll be rocking and rolling.

What other outdoor activities do you enjoy?

Snowboarding , White water rafting, camping, fishing, gardening, cruising in an old truck to nowhere.


I'm new to Pittsburgh. I've always wanted to learn how to kayak and get out on the water by myself. I miss the whitewater community so I can assume that the kayak community is just as cool.
