Yo Skywalker, not to get personal but are you a professional kayaker? Is there any real
money in kayaking? Do you get paid to travel around and kayak or do you have another job that is flexible with your schedule? You seem to be doing it right, and it just doesn't seem worth your time to travel around to win little pots at competitions. Where is the $$$ in kayaking?
I'm at work and this sucks, I need more paddles days and $.
