How much experience do you have? (never kayaked before, rented a kayak a few times, an avid paddler, etc.)

I have had kayaking lessons and I did some kayaking in Alaska on big lakes, sloughs, and an easy going river. I did a white water kayaking trip once, with some rapids, several years ago, and did great. I skirted the edge of a Level 3 rapid during that trip, but didn't shoot through it like my son, who ended up tossed into the ice-cold snow-fed water. :-) I'd say I'm an experienced beginner, comfortable on my kayak, not concerned with falling off. I have scuba dived, so falling off is no biggie.

Do you own a kayak ?

I own two. A 14' Manta Ray sit on top I adore, and an old sit on top Ocean Kayak I learned on and brought all the way from Alaska, fastened to the top of my UHaul trailer. I use a bumper extender kayak carrier, and I can carry two kayaks.


I moved here from Alaska in 2012. Looking to get more active and make new friends.
