Do you agree to wear your life jacket on all meetup paddles? This must be answered affirmatively to be accepted in the HRK.


How long have you been paddling?

Since 1987, but got my first sea kayak in 1993.

What kind and size of kayak(s) do you Have?

More than fit here, two surfskis, 3 sea kayaks, tandem sea kayak, 3 sot surf boats, 1 sit in surf boat, 2 canoes, 3 kid's boats, 1 tandem Sot, 2 olympic k-1s, a tandem SOT, and remnants of a couple of dead boats laying around. I am the local dealer for Stellar Kayaks and Surfskis through Virginia Beach Paddlesports.

What types of paddle events are you hoping for from this organization?

Fun events!

Do you know how to dress for paddling in cold weather?



Competition is the biggest part of my paddling background, but I’m also an ACA Open Water Coastal Instructor, an ACA Level 3 Surf Kayak Instructor and a Level 2 Surf Kayak Instructor Trainer. I’ve been instructing and guiding since 1994. Be safe!!

What chuck is saying about this Meetup Group

Great group for meeting paddlers of all levels. Lots of really nice people.
