How To Choose the Right Kayak for You

Looking for a kayak? Come to this event! Our own Chuck McMillin was a kayak instructor for seven years and has lots of experience helping people choose the right kayak for their paddling skills, body size, vehicle, etc.  Chuck has graciously agreed to give a seminar on choosing the right kayak. He did this last year, and everyone found it very helpful. This year I'll explain how to get a new kayak FREE.

We will not be on the water, but Chuck will bring a variety of kayaks for you to sit in (and to try lifting!). Bring all your questions, and come dressed to sit comfortably in kayaks. Wear something close to what you wear when kayaking -- for example, your water shoes.

Chuck will cover the basics in an hour or less, but if many people show up with lots of questions, we will stay longer. The discussion will be geared to those who come.

The purpose of this session is emphatically NOT to tout one brand or type of kayak, but to help you find a kayak that you will enjoy paddling and be able to handle, both in the water and when loading and unloading it from your car.

DIRECTIONS: Take the Beltway to the Clara Barton Parkway heading West (away from DC). Take the exit for Carderock Recreation Area. You will come to a T intersection where you must turn left or right. Turn left. We will set up in the grassy area next to the parking lot.
