London/Surrounding areas - Looking for others!

Hello everyone, My name is Ben 23 currently living in North London.

I have been paddling for the last year now, but no one I know shows the slightest interest in kayaking no matter how hard I try to convince them!

I often find myself driving to the Lake District, Norfolk Broads and a few small rivers around Essex, I sometimes like to wild camp along with kayaking and turn my trips into a couple of days. I would love to find someone or a small group to join for a paddle as being alone does kinda suck sometimes. I'm happy to drive all around the country and even abroad.... I also have a very lose work schedule as I am lucky enough to be my own boss, so I can get out for adventures often!

anyway... Hope to find some like minded people on here and have some good times! :)

Hi Ben

I presume you're tried some local clubs?

There are plenty of boaters in London, some of them go no further than Hurley but they occasionally make the pilgrimage to the Dart; I am sure you might be able to persuade a few to spread their wings! Good luck.

Sorry for the late reply guys. I think its about time I tried joining a club. I've been meaning to get into white water stuff also, and LVWWC is right on my doorstep so its all fits in rather well. :) From the looks of it I will see some of you there !
