Kayak choice length for use on the tidal Potomac River in Northern Virginia? Sea kayak perhaps since it's tidal and choppy at times with winds, currents, waves and open water. I am wanting to paddle more at/near Mason Neck, Leesylvania, Widewater, Caledon and Westmoreland State Parks. Currently I am paddle a Wilderness Systems Tsunami 145 and am hugging the shore lines on the few occasions I have ventured out.
Thanks to you and Rob and the irrepressible Jeff Atkins for the most wonderful long weekend. Give me a week or two to recover and then I want to do it all over again!
I always enjoy hanging out with kayakers! Great group of folks showed up to greet Jeff Atkins prior to this weekends workshop. Thanks Capital City Kayak for bringing a great instructor to town.

Coaches’s shake down paddle. Happy first day in the Keys.

Did you know that four piece Lendal paddles are available by custom order? For those of us who travel it means we won’t have to rely on some sketchy outfitter paddle at our destination. All Lendals are available in the new colors as well as the original black blades.

Strokes for Intermediate Folks class on Saturday was a blast. Fab group of students!

I'm in the process of making a new video but this one is servicable until I get the new one up. Just a simple, low stress rescue technique.

Fast pace (for me, that is) exercise paddles, twice weekly. More once it gets warm!

I forgot my camera so could only take land pics, boo.

Very nice paddle off the south side of Kent Island, Chesapeake Bay.

We have two green and blue, and one blue and white 2019 Sportives in stock right now.

Spent the weekend coaching with Randi Kruger and Brian Stevens at WavePlay in Southport NC. Went with one kayak, returned with another. Bought an NDK Sportive. A great surfer and will use for rock play. I’d had my eye on this for awhile, but at 5’8” and lots of legs I worried the cockpit (a tad shorter then my Romany and Explorer) would be too hard on my shins. It was an easy breezy adjustment to move the fiber glass seat back an inch, with little to no difference in trim on the water. It’s actually such a great fit, with noticeable increased performance, I’ll be foaming in the cockpit of my Explorer now. Loooved it in the surf.
