Hi to all, my names mike and i live in cornwall, well just moved to townlake near tavistock, and i want to learn sea kayaking, i am new to paddling but have just got myself a valley gemini st and all gear needed so was looking for anyone to go out with for a paddle or expedition and to learn a thew things along the way. Would really like to get into doing some overnighters as i am a keen hiker and have tent and stove and all gear like that so would like to take it over to paddling as well, but happy for a hour or two hear or there or a multi day trip.

Any one keen to get out as soon as possible that would be great!.

Cheers Mike

Creatamax, please join a club and get some proper training, I you don't then you are at risk of experiencing terror and fear. Not wishing to deter you from kayaking but more keen you stay safe.

Hi Nigel thanks for the reply, i am joining PPCA kayaking club in plymouth to get some training and to go out and learn with some like minded and trained people. But would also like to try and make some friends to go out more often then just with the group especially when we start getting evenings back.

Cheers Mike
