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

I do own a PFD and a paddle.

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

I have only been out twice kayaking, but I knew the first time that this is something I really want to get involved in. I really enjoyed the peace and quiet and the challenge. The first time I went out was on the West River, it was very early and there were no power boats moving around and the water was very still. It was an easy paddle. I also went out at Stoney Creek in the middle of the day, there were a lot more powerboats out and about, so I had to be careful of the wakes and staying out of their way. I still enjoyed it.

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 have a Potomac Sport, Pathfinder 100. It is a beginner kayak for sure.

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 want to kayak for all the reasons listed, it is relaxing on the water in the fresh air. I loved the challenge of it as well, I enjoy challenging myself to do new activities. I new that this was the sport for me.

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 want to meet people that also enjoy paddling and a group that I can go out with on the water and enjoy nature.
