ACA instructor for kayak, SUP, and adaptive paddlesports. I am an event organizer for this group, and also the Organizer for Lake Ridge Park Paddlers http://www.meetup.... web site at www.baymysticpaddling.com.
I've been kayaking for 10 years and have paddled from Richmond to Washington D.C. (700-mile round trip mostly as day trips). I am presently circumnavigating the Chesapeake Bay and have completed the western side and about half the Eastern Shore (mostly in week-long trips). I also sea kayaked in Canada, Maine, Alaska and the Florida Keys and Everglades. I paddle with Euro, wing, and Greenland paddles. Presently I am retired and I work part-time for Prince William County Parks and Recreation teaching their paddlesports programs, classes, and camps.
Epic 18X Sport, NDK Romany Classic, Perception Whip-it, Grumman whitewater canoe, and 4 stand up paddle boards (too many boats, not enough time)
Great group. Interesting people. Beautiful paddling locations. Very active during the paddling season and some of us even paddle all winter.
Thanks Pete, I have a few friends that are interested in going out on some leisurely paddles but don't have kayaks. I will be in contact with you about the size of our group and kayak needs next week. Thanks, Lynn
Hi Pete, thanks for the welcome! I'm actually not the same Patrick who won the race, although he seems like a pretty cool guy also. I haven't made it down to Lake Ridge yet, but I saw the group and joined.
Hi Pete, thanks for a nice welcome, I am looking forward to my first lesson this Saturday, really exciting to find this close to my home and I will definitely take advantage of this.
I've seen the paddle boarders while I was stationed in Hawai'i, but they were on the Waikiki side of the island. I'll give it a try here at Lake Ridge, but I'm more comfortable on a kayak. When's the next paddle board class?
Hi Pete, thanks for your help this weekend!
Thanks, Pete! Looking forward to going out on the water with you all!
