I have recreational experience from the last 15 years and recently taken whitewater lessons. Hopefully I'll have a roll by the end of the summer. I've been in true sea kayaks, recreational, sit-on tops (heavy!), and most recently, a huge ducky we nicknamed The Barge, that I wouldn't get in again.
I will have to rent for now unless some kind hearted person is loaning them out, but I'm finally considering buying.
I kayak for all of the above. It's fun, it's unplugged, you can get a great arm and core workout, it takes you places you wouldn't see otherwise, and here is my oddball reason, I like the sounds - lapping water, the paddle hitting the water, birds, wind...
I'm looking to meet new people and improve my kayaking. I would like to learn to roll and be confident enough to take friends out on trips. I would like to try kayaing camping and possibly take a week or longer point to point kayaking vacation.
I am a weekend warrior and enjoy a lot of activities except evenings in front of the tv. I've been a recreational kayaker for years and I'm hoping to find a fun group to paddle with and become a better boater.
