I own two kayaks. One is a 16.5' Wilderness Systems III touring kayak. This one I use on most of my touring trips and would like to try some overnight camping in the future. My other kayak is an 11.2' Perception Proline Pironette which is my play boat. I bought it on a whim to learn how to white water kayak to which I have been once. It is also fun to play with in the surf and tight paddles like Jennings Springs.
Well, I guess the best way to explain that is probably a bit above average. I have been through some paddling classes such as a a basic paddle and rescue (single and assisted) class with the Florida Sea Kayaking Association and a 2 day White Water class in Atlanta, GA. I have paddled in Class II / Class III rapids in North Carolina's Tuckasegee River.
Hello, My name is Paul Bennett and have been kayaking...when I have time...for about 5 years. I have paddled in rivers, springs, the ocean, lakes, rapids (once), and even a drainage ditch...no kidding...If it's got water, I'm game!!!
