Always loved kayaking while vacationing, and Meetup inspired me to get my own. Looking forward to paddling, improving skills, making friends, seeing and photographing animals, and just having fun.
Pretty much a beginner with some experience--but not much! Update, 2012: I have now advanced to beginning intermediate!
Please see above on 'why interested in this Meetup.' I can also add getting more exercise to that list. Also willing to help put with administrative tasks, time permitting.
Just bought a nearly 11 foot closed deck (Necky Manitou Sport).
A brilliant piece of legal work, thank you!
Moved up to the Bay Area from Southern California in 1987, and glad I did!
Our outstanding organizing, Jerry, who responds to questions promptly and helpfully. His great attitude at the meet-up itself was also very welcome, and it was structured for both beginners and more experienced paddlers. Speaking of which, this is a very friendly and accepting group of people, who helped everyone feel comfortable. An outstanding group for both newbies and veterans, you will love it!
