A PFD (Personal Floatation Device) is required for all of our paddles. Do you have your own PFD or have acces to one?

Yes

Please tell us a little about your previous kayaking experience. It's okay if you don't have a lot of experience.

Just enjoy being on the water, especially the Bay. I teach distance paddling in the KIP series. Kent Island Paddle and enjoy sharing it with others.

What kind or type of kayak(s) do you own? If you'll be renting or borrowing from a friend that's okay too. We also have rental kayaks for members to use.

You know how it is. You buy one and the next thing you have a fleet. My favorite in a Nordkapp LV, Khatsalano folding kayak, skin on frame and a surf ski.

Why do you kayak? Some people paddle to relax and get away from it all outdoors, others to stay fit. The real crazies paddle just for the joy and fun of it. What's your reason?

I took up kayaking for several reasons. First it is great exercise, I can paddle all day and still feel great. Every time I go out it is an adventure. I like the challenge when I am paddling in the Bay. I am ready for most conditions and love it.

What do you hope to get out of joining this group? Some people want to improve their paddling skills others just want to socialize with fellow paddlers. Is there anything special you're looking for?

I like meeting people that enjoy kayaking as much as I do. I would like to pass on some of the things I have learned.

Introduction

I live in the DC area. Really enjoy paddling and meeting new paddlers in this sport.
