kayaks on the water

Kayak leader: Fearless leader Jose

Ok I always do this on saturday, but this time I will do this on Sunday. But I have some sad news, They raised the price to twelve dollars. So I have a little message for all of you, I am not a cash register.

BRING 12 DOLLARS exactly

 

So lets go kayaking! C'mon and try it with a partner or by yourself



since they have one person and two person kayaks



Also find a partner while I am collecting money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Not two minutes before we get on the boats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

having a partner is a lot better, you have someone to talk to, you could make a new friend or new special friend(wink,wink), and if you get tired they can do the rowing for a while.

BTW THEY HAVE A RULE YOU CAN'T SWIM YOU CAN'T KAYAK.



But the only way they find out is if you tell them. (wink Wink)

When: Sunday August 11, 9:30am



Where: Kayaks on the water



5411 east ocean Blvd



Long beach, Ca 90803



Behind the playground, look for the canopy



Kayak in the harbor, not in the ocean. Perfectly safe no waves

Cost: 12 dollars for two hours(group rate) per person



bring cash--- no credit cards or checks. Oh yes be nice to Jose and



bring the correct change. if not you may contribute to Jose's lunch fund. 



This includes Kayak, dry sack, life jacket-vest and baggies. Park



on the street, residential neighborhood or the metered parking.



bring lots of quarters for metered parking, but those meters only last two hours.



So just park in the neighborhood on the left of the kayaks and save quarters



and a possible ticket!

*********************************************************



IF YOU ARE LATE AND WE HAVE LEFT, YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO THE GROUP RATE



tHAT IS THIER RULE, SO YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!!!!!

*********************************************************

Level: Moderate- Beginner. That means anyone can do it, if you can



paddle for a couple of hours and swim. they have 1 and 2 person kayaks.



SO IF YOU ARE NOT IN SHAPE, partner with someone that is in shape and



let them do the rowing. They have a rule that you must know how to swim.



but they give you a life jacket. we burn 300 calories an hour kayaking.



If this is your first time partner with someone. ask around the group for



someone to do it with.

 

what to bring: Zip lock baggies for your wallet, phones, or other electronic



equipment you have. Sunscreen, hat,bring clothes that you don't mind getting



wet. Like a swimsuit. They don't allow regular shoes in the kayaks so you



need to bring sandals or water shoes. And something to drink like water



. money for kayak. They have bathrooms



so you can change into your regular clothes afterwards





Event description: The place IS BEHIND THE PLAYGROUND not on the street.



They have a canopy where we will sign waivers and pay the money beforehand.



They have restrooms in which to change into your dry clothes. they lend you



a dry bag to put your things you want to stay dry. keep in mind if you don't use



it right, things will get wet.

It is not in the ocean, Inside the harbor, with no waves. It is very hard to tip



these things over. Believe me I tried to test it out. They are very stable.

If you have never tried it, you must do this once in your life.



20 people must show up for the group rate, so please come to this event.

 At 9:30am we do the intros and how to kayak talk.



Sign and pay the money. then we leave, if your late we might not be there.



the 2 hours start once we hit the water. If all goes well we will back at the



beach around 12:00pm. Rain Cancels !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks, Jose, for all your hard work in putting together this fun outing! Must have been a challenging feat, but you helped a bunch of bored Angelenos get their Sunday morning groove on without breaking the bank, and now your bank of good karma OVERFLOWS!! :-)

      Sorry no time, with work and family and friends and my womanizing. I have no time. I left my place at 7:00am today and I just got back at 12:45am! And its a normal Friday! Sunday is my rest day and I have to do things with my friends from 4-7 after the kayak. But no one can accuse me of not living life to the fullest!

    Hi Jose. Is it a problem if I leave early? Might need to depending on when we get started.

    August 9, 2013

    • jose

      You can leave anytime, but those 12 bucks are gone, no refunds for time unused. Also pay attention where we are, you have to find your own way back

      You can do that once you get there

      August 8, 2013

    • jose

      no, but it is a good idea to do it.most of us hikers hve strong legs and can walk for a while. especially you. But how is your arm strength and endurance for the arms? I have seen many a woman regret going alone. With a partner, you have someone to talk to, pal around with, and it makes it more fun. with another person you can share the load and if you get tired or they get tired, you can help and motivate each other to keep going. trust me find a person there while I am collecting money. and if you don't like it, you can try it alone next time. besides plenty of cute guys to chose from. just don't scare them ;-)

    ok... not riding my motorcycle... driving from hollywood/vine (nearby)... anyone wants to carpool... also, need a kayak partner...
