Kayak Instructor, CPR/First Aid Certified


Nashville, TN
Hometown: Nashville

Organizer since:

June 15, 2009

Any paddling experience, even distant past? And in what - canoe, kayak, other?

Canoed growing up, tandem kayaked and moved on to paddling my 12' Wilderness System Pungo, the best recreational kayak on the river.

If you can do ?? after the lesson you will feel like your money was well spent.

For nine years on a Mazda I transported a 12' boat that weighs 47 pounds. Ladies, don't let anyone talk you into a small, light boat that you will regret owning every mile you are on the river! Let me show you how to easily load your kayak on your vehicle.

What motivates you to take the lesson?

There's bad advice given by untrained people doing an injustice to the sport. Learn from a well-seasoned, patient and fun-loving instructor with an emphasis on safety.

What works best for you - evenings during the week, Saturday, Sunday? Please list all.

If there's nothing on the calendar that works for your schedule, email me. If your group or family reunion would like private instructions, we can make that happen.


I fell in love with kayaking seventeen years ago and enjoy passing along the love of the sport to others. After teaching others for a long time, I spent a vacation in New Hampshire getting certified by the American Canoe Association.

What Leslie is saying about this Meetup Group

I love that moment when someone's face lights up and they say, "I can do this!" and I think: A new kayaker is born. Thank you all for allowing me to be a part of that.
