Why are you interested in this Meetup?

1 Upper body exercise to balance my bike-only life style. 2 Also, I save lives and miss being around people who need to drop everything if "man overboard" alarm sounds! 3 Other interests: My favorite thing to do in Berkeley is to go to UCB lectures with over 100 scientists and ask: "Can I see a show of hands: How many agree with me that the 'Normal Healthy Human Mind' is defective?"..... and have only 1% raise their hands! :-) Life is sometimes like "an ocean of nuttiness to vigilantly navigate!" Let's Practice!

What skill level are you? It really makes no difference if you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced kayaker. We ask so we can better plan our trips.

I took a roll class ~30 years ago... so I need another one... I have 100s of hours

This is YOUR group! Tell me what you'd like to gain from being a member. Would you be willing to suggest and host paddles?

Is anyone interested in making a movie of a floating teepee(shaped like a forearm) with a hand on the top?(popularized from a scene in Academy Award nominated movie "Sometime A Great Notion")

Do you own your own boat? If so, is it a sit on top or closed deck?

What jt is saying about this Meetup Group

The Theme Song to Gilligan's Island TV show: "If not for the courage of the fearless crew, the Minnow[their boat] would be lost! the Minnow[their boat] would be lost!" 2 CG Is Everything I'm often surrounded by meditators who talk about "centering" and I have no idea what that is... with boating you want your Center of Gravity below the water line if possible 3 Archimedes principle: "the upward buoyant force exerted on a body immersed in a fluid is equal to the [levity/]weight [of the sense of civic/civil/humor of the kayakers that buoy you up] 4 We achieved a "high-high tide" by "Following the MoonShadow"... which is a Cat Stevens song: "And if I ever lose my legs, I won't moan, and I won't beg, Yes if I ever lose my legs, [I'll invent an amphibious kayak]"
