What level paddler are you? Never tried it but want to, beginner and been out a few times, intermediate-kayak regularly, dangerously experienced!

Experienced in lake, river and coastal paddling.

Do you own a kayak, and if so, what kind?

Many different boats, Main one is a Pygmy Borealis (wood). Also have a Chesapeake 17, Tempest 165, Perception Captiva and Old Town Nantucket.

Where is your favorite place to kayak?

Hudson River or Anywhere on the Gulf coast of Mississippi or Florida!

Do you take responsibility for your own safety and agree to abide by the posted rules for each event?

I'm very safety oriented. One of the most valuable skills for a kayaker is the ability to "wet-exit" their boat and get back in through a self rescue or assisted rescue. This helps the paddler overcome the inherant fear of capsize - thus allowing them to "push the envelope" and really learn their capabilities.

Tell us a little about yourself and paddling history!

Safety, skill and fun is what Kayaking is all about! Love my time on the water and enjoy introducing others to the sport. Did several Meetup trainig sessions last year and had a blast!
