CocaineI squirt, but it's not in the way you're thinking.
Thizzle.What are some good kayaks to look for to start out? I have spent a lot of time on rivers but never been in a kayak before but I really want to start.
zakattack66So where you at
ScottBHonestly just keep your eye out for a used kayak. New ones start at a grand but they last a life time unless your really beat them up. And look for a local kayak club or a group of people you could go with, I still can't ever imagine going out alone.
On a different note what are people's experiences with rescue training, identifying features and first aid. This past year I felt very stupid with the amout of training I got for the amout of time on the river, I would've been very unprepared if a boat ever got pinned or a similar rescue scenario were to happen. I'm just curious to know both what certifying bodies people use and what others are comfortable running rivers with
Thizzle.Awesome thanks, we have a good consignment shop in Bozeman that has a couple kayaks laying around for around 500. Anything specific damage or anything I should look for on a used one?
.lenconI live in Idaho and where I live I usually don't get to go that often, but I've kayaked the salmon river before and thats pretty cool and scary at the same time
casual.weekdayQueensbury, NY. third season doing it in summer 2016, but summer 2015 was my first "full" season.
tBattWhere do you paddle? I've been guiding the Hudson for 5 years now.
csteezywhats good kayakers. So i finally live in Montana again and there are kayaking opportunities out the ass here. I've kayaked in my lifetime, but really only casually with nothing too wild and exciting. What's the best way into the sport? I'm gonna need something to occupy my time in the summer
Thizzle.Bozeman area? I'm looking to get into the MT kayaking scene this summer as well
