I just moved here 3 months ago myself. I'd be down to paddle with you. Although I am about as clueless as you are, haha.

Hi,

Do you know about Outdoor Divas on Pearl Street? They are a great store that teaches classes for women, and run awesome workshops, (Rebeccah Giddens taught a slalom weekend course several years ago). And you could hook up with some great gals. I taught for them before moving to Durango. If you wander in, tell them Kim says hi!

Hey! If I don't go to Waterton Canyon tomorrow I think I'm going to head to the Boulder Res to paddle around. After being away from kayaking for a while my strokes need some serious tuning up!!!!! I don't have any firm plans regarding time, but imagine it will be in the early afternoon. Write me back if you're interested in meeting up...anyone else too, for that matter!

You sound like just my speed...

I just moved to Boulder 2 weeks ago and looking for some boating buddies as well. I'm comfortable in class 2 (need a combat roll yet though!) and looking to improve to class 3 this year. Been guiding (oars/paddleboat) for 9 years, so pretty comfortable on river, just need to learn to do it better in a smaller boat. I'm available weekends as well as some weekdays too. Let me know when you'd like to go out. Maybe we could put a group trip together...

Hey,
I am also a new kayaker, last year was my first season and I would like to meet a few people to go out with. I did a few class 3 runs at the end of last year although I would still say that I am more comfortable with 2+. I am looking to improve this year. I am also from Boulder.
