Love 4 Kayaking

So I just wanted to share how the river has changed my life........................
This time last year I was flipping burgers at a local pub. I would go home after work and get on YouTube to watch others adventures on and off the water. After running across kayak session video of the year awards it hit me,kayaking was what I wanted to do!
Not knowing anyone who kayaked I convinced a friend that kayaking was awesome. After hours of research and a months of saving. I bought a Mamba and hit the water every chance I got.
Its almost been a year since the first time I started boating. In that year I quit my job and boat 3 to 4 times a week. I have a new raft guiding job that will start in spring. I couldnt be happier with the way my life is going. I never knew when I bought my kayak it was going to show me what true passion feels like.
I would like to give a big thanks to you guys for answering all my stupid questions this past year. I hope as my skills improve I will be able to help others also.
