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.

I have done a lot of flat water kayaking since I was a child, but I don't have much experience with more difficult paddles. I have done whitewater in a duckie boat and have attempted to learn eskimo rolls.

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 will be renting for now, but am looking into buying a kayak. The trouble is how to store it when I live in a city apartment.

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 kayaking for the joy of it, but also find that nothing is as relaxing as being out on the water.

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?

First off I am looking for people to go paddling with, rather than trying to coerce my friends into learning. I would love to improve my skills, and am planning to do a sea kayaking vacation in the next year.

Introduction

Hello. It looks like I found your group a bit late to do any kayaking this year, but can't wait for spring.
