A PFD (Personal Floatation Device) is required for all of our paddles. Do you have your own PFD or have acces to one?
No yet, but ordering one.
Please tell us a little about your previous kayaking experience. It's okay if you don't have a lot of experience.
Have taken a few classes over the years and kayaked as a scout leader. But I'm not a regular and don't own a kayak...yet.
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.
I rent, but looking to buy one eventually
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 enjoy being in and on the water, both for relaxation and fitness. In a kayak, one can blend in and observe nature in a non-intrusive way.
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?
Improve paddling skills, learn about local areas to paddle, and get to know people with similar interests.
Hi, I grew up in Florida Gulf coast with water all around me, so kayaking is one of my favorite ways to get back out on the water, relax, and enjoy the great outdoors.
