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)

Perception Swifty 9.5 - Pink! My daughter has a Potomac Vortex 80DLX Just purchased a sit-upon: Ocean Kayak - Tetra 10 and I love it!

Where are your favorite places to paddle?

The Presque Isle Lagoons and bay are wonderful. North Park Lake used to be my favorite because I live only 4 miles away and can hit the water nearly every day, but Lake Arthur has become my favorite. I enjoy the Allegheny river from Millvale and the Point. The Bottom Yough is a very easy paddle, and the middle Yough is fun, without a roll. I have done the Middle Yough three times, only took a swim the first time!

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

I am interested in all types of trips, anything at all out on the water!

What other outdoor activities do you enjoy?



Greetings, I began Kayaking in 2011. In May of 2012 I purchased a starter kayak, and I paddle nearly every night at North Park Lake. On the weekends I'm at the Middle or bottom Yough, Lake Arthur or on one of the three rivers.
