Anyone have a Kayak?

I clearly dont have enough hobbies and there might be 2.75 square feet of space left in my garage. So does anyone do any kayaking? thinking about buying one.

I was looking at taking classes last summer. The day trips along the chicago river and out ont the lake looked cool as hell. Classes and the trips were not expensive at all.

If you are serious about this and have any questions, my nephew does it, has been all over the world, chili argentina etc. Let me know and I will ask him whatever you need to know.

Tony, if you want a new kayak at a great price hit up REI. You can get 20% off a single item through April 2nd. They also have a very knowledgable staff.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I've been reseaching it for a couple years but I was looking to do it for fishing more as transportation and steath that that hardcore white water shit. I've rented some fairly long and skinny kind, it's sort of a weird unsettling feeling initially but it's a blast.

When I was a kid I used to rent them on the beach in Florida. had a blast in the waves with them. I'm thinking just being able to hit the fox river ot the kankakee would be cool.

I've been thinking about it too.. there is a place in Skokie on Mc Cormick and Oakton, where you can rent a kayak by the hour and go up and down the river. I've done it a couple of times and really enjoyed it... I suggest that to make sure you really want to do this before you drop the coin.

I too am looking for a Kayak so if anyone else has one.. let me know!

There's also a place on Narragansett just north of Irving on the NW side of Chicago that I rented from once.

But yeah, Tony, take some lessons or go with another experienced kayaker. One of the things you will need to practice is the rolls.

I read about that guy in the paper.. he is reported to be the "go to" guy for kayaks in Chicagoland... If you happen to remember more details can you post up.

BTW the river I was in... I wouldnt practice rolls.... thats some nasty water!

THANKS!
