Newbcomer here!

Hey everyone, just joined the forum a few days ago!
I don't have much experience paddling but from the few times I have, I know it's a good fit for me.

I have a kayak in the mail coming my way and I can't wait for it to arrive so I can get it out on the water. It's an Old Town Vapor 12XT.

Now I know it's not a white water boat, I'll mostly be paddling flat water and slow moving rivers and streams. Nothing with more than a class I or II.

Although eventually I'll work my way to a shorty for whitewater.
Glad to be here and contributing!

New in the water myself. Out here in San Diego really loving the wave ski on the surf, my complication is using a left arm above elbow prosthesis and trying to workout with others an adaptation for a one arm paddle so I can learn to eskimo roll and try some whitewater.

bikemad, try a hand roll with somebody right next to you at first to build up confidence. When I do mine, I can put my left hand in my pfd and come up every time w/ just using the right hand. If you haven't had any instruction I would recommend some. You will have a quicker learning curve and be on your way faster!
Cheers, Brett
