Any Kayakers in here? - May 17, 2008, 10:07 PM

My neighbor just gave me a kayak, wavesport, about 8' long. he sez it's a whitewater kayak. I've been looking to learn how to use it, or can someone recommend a few places I can go? Nothing to extreme like great falls, I can swim but prefer not to. I've paddled canoes, so I'm familiar with paddling, but never done kayaking.

Used to have one and a slip at Belle Haven Marina just outside of Old Town.If you just want to start out on some flat water,quite a bit of space to get used to it there.I once paddled over to MD where the new harbor project is now.It was like riding a big wheel across 95.You don't really notice how the middle of the Potomac can be until you're in a tiny kayak and there's a boat coming at you at 100 MPH lol....its quite wavy out there.....or you can head down to the bay at Assateague.


Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven
