Started kayaking several years ago and hooked ever since. Enjoy wide open bays as well as flowing rivers. What better way to relax and clear your mind?

What types of water do you like to paddle? (flatwater, rivers, open water, whitewater, etc)

White water to salt water and everything in between. Favor mostly wide open bays, large rivers, and class III rapids. Not a "Piney".

What skill level are you? (beginner, intermediate, advanced)

Advanced intermediate

Do you own your own boat(s), and if so what types?

14' and 16' tsunami; wavesport diesel 80, and a Dagger Zydeco 12 just for fun.

When are you normally free to paddle?

Weekends work best

    Hi Sheldon, I'm planning to come to the whitewater run on the 18th. I don;t have much experience in white water. Is this for beginner white water goers, or for the more experienced?

    I've used this boat on the Delaware from the Zane Gray Museum to Port Jervis one week after tropical storm Lee and also around the Statue of Liberty with no problem. I also have a 12'6" Lincoln Quoddy if you rather I use that one.
