Introduction

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.

How long have you been paddling? Under what conditions? We do NOT paddle whitewater (rapids), but we paddle everything from totally flat water to 3-foot waves.

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.

If you own a kayak, what type and how long? (say "N/A" if you don't own) If you paddle a stand-up paddleboard, whitewater kayak or inflatable kayak, this is NOT the club for you.

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.

    Pete,
    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, FYI, we enjoyed the "LEAF" paddle last Saturday with Hector and Amy, Chris, LA and others from WAKC that were with the "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on You" group. (The group left before the official launch time but we managed to catch up - it was fun.)
