just paddle. If you want to learn to kayak you have to get in your boat as much as possible. There are a few people I started paddling with a couple years ago that I still talk to and none of them paddle more than 4 or 5 times a year, and they all swim all the time.

Get ready (assuming you get hooked) to loose your interest in skiing starting at the end of April from now on, when the snow pack and temps are ideal. You will wonder why everyone loves skiing in May when they could be kayaking as the water comes up, getting ready for the big flows. You will also wonder why all those friends of yours are scared of the water, when they will happily risk their lives backcountry skiing in avalanche areas where you have no control over the outcome. At least on the river you control your own destiny. How many broken arms/legs occur in skiing? There aren't many injuries in kayaking. I still don't understand why people are so scared of the sport.
