You just found out about ww kayaking yesterday? Read a book, take a class, and don't run anything you don't feel comfortable swimming until you reach class V. Oh, and rolling is easy once you learn how...

No? I'm saying these were things I was unaware of before kayaking.

Come on guys, play along. This could be a pretty good thread if people jump in.

I'll add one.....Public nudity on the side of busy roads is totally ok.

Especially if you pretend to try to cover up!

My legs always fall asleep in my playboat... probably because it's made for midgets...

But I took the hip pads out of my Burn and replaced them with a much thinner layer of foam and my legs quit falling asleep in that boat. So I got that goin for me...
